It's up to you to decide how many added accessories you want to have. If you are willing to buy a vehicle loaded with accessories, I would use bernardiparts (plus reasonable labor cost) to figure out how much you want to pay for those added items on top of your purchase price. I know Mission Valley Honda tends to do that to its cars which I personally hate. My preference would be agreeing on the purchase price of the car then negotiate for other items since dealers tend to give you a better deal to close the sale. In 2005 when I got my Pilot EX-L, the sale manager from Metro Honda asked me if his price was in line with other surrounding dealers what could he do for me to come in the same day? I told him the running board, he could not decide but he will call me back right away after he cleared with his manager. He called me back and the deal was done the same day. Be patient, don't let them force you to buy anything you don't want to buy. Check Spreen, they don't seem to add any thing to their cars, I also read somewhere, Norm Reeves would match Spreen as well. I hate matching (why didn't they give the lowest price in the first place) and only use it when the first guy didn't have the color I want. Good luck.

That's a good deal. Was it difficult to negotiate?

Sorry for my delayed response.
Yes, the negotiation process was long. We got to the dealership around 2:30pm (Super Bowl Sunday) and drove off with the car around 7:30pm. I hate the whole process.
I got the Urban Titanium. I wanted red but my wife has a red Pilot so she didn't want us to match .

You got a little better deal than I did and I got the AWD EX-L RES in black. I leased my car at the same dealership and it took probably 4+ hours total to get everything done. The purchase price came out to 27700 and we got them to throw in a remote starter. Looking back we probably could have gotten it down a little more or got some more stuff thrown in if I really wanted to play the game more with them. Overall I thought this was still a good price for a very new to the market car. The only thing I did not like about the dealer was the appearance package that is on every car they have. It is just a nice way for them to jack up their price by 995 dollars(pinstriping, door edge guards, undercoating, yada yada).
