Update to my original message .
Spoke with sales manager last week. 2008 CR-V EXL Front Wheel Drive with Navigation on order with no build date yet. Deposit was placed the end of October. Dealership has received info on their December builds that will be here in January. Mine is not among them. Probably means a January build with a February delivery. Again, none in the 5 state area.
Dealership is expecting a AWD any day.
Agreed to $600 more for the AWD version instead of the front wheel drive this week.
MSRP is $1200 more.
Base List Price 28400
Agreed to full MSRP on the accessories below with no install fees. Sure you can purchase the Honda accessories online for around a 30% discount, which would be about a $390 savings. This savings does not including the shipping fees, therefore the savings is even less. Then you still have to install yourself or "hire" it done elsewhere. If accessories are installed by the dealer, same 3 year 36,000 mile warranty as the vehicle. If installed yourself, there is a 1 year warranty.
Tailgate Spoiler 289
Wheel Locks 54
Roof Rack 289
Front Splash Guards 63
Fog Lights 319
All Season Floor Mats 139
Cargo Tray 105
Chrome Exhaust Trim 50
3M Scotchguard Paint Protection Film 520
Negotiated discount -2013
Discounted price 28850
Documentation and Handling Fee +395 (I know, seems a bit high)
Total out the door with installed accessories is 30927

The 3M ScotchGuard Paint Protection Film is not an official Honda accessory.
Located a company online called xpel. You can type in your vehicle and pull up coverage kits.
Then, went to 3M ScotchGuard's website for local install/retailers. Turns out, the Honda dealer we decided to purchase the vehicle from is listed as a Authorized install/retailer of the 3M product. I based the price I was willing to pay on xpel's online pricing. The Honda dealership agreed to the product/install for the price I could order the kits online. My purchase agreement with the Honda dealer includes part #'s P0218C and P0218D as a description of desired coverage.

xpel.com gives an option to locate a dealer/installer for your area. Unfortunately there is no one in our area. That fact led me to look up installers via 3M's website. The film xpel uses is manufactured by 3M.

Here is what I think how it is installed
Tailgate Spoiler (may need some help)? or go to to a workshop
Wheel Locks (easy as a pea)
Roof Rack (same as the tailgate)
Front Splash Guards (just putting it on the car)
All Season Floor Mats (easy to "install")
Cargo Tray (easy to install)
Chrome Exhaust Trim (easy to install)
Fog lights (same as the tailgate)
basically most of the item you listed are non-electronics except for the fog lights, what are the chances of those non electronics things getting spoilt? Close to zero I guess...
#6401 of 13032 08 CRV EX-L No Navi Lease
Dec 07, 2007 (9:26 am)
I am somewhat new to all this. Wanted to get an opinion on the following lease deal in the San Diego area.
2008 CRV EX-L, No Nav
3 yr, 36k term
lease $415/month including tax, $1400 "down"
down includes 1st payment, cap reduction of $639, sales tax $53, 1st year fees of $238, and $45 doc fees, no sec. deposit
other items listed on the printout i got are
Net Cap cost of 26,090, this includes the 639 cap reduction, so gross of 26,730
I think the MF is standard Honda.
So, is this a good deal. If not, what questions should I be asking to get a better deal.
Finally, I was also quoted $467/month for same car, with Nav. Net cap cost of $27,841...
Thanks for any help

I don't know if you can back out of the deal now, but it sounds like the dealer saw you coming. I'd run as far and as fast as I could from that dealership. Document Fees are garbage, just extra profit for the dealer. Any discount the dealer gave you he made right back up on the accessories, and likely came out better than if you had paid full sticker for the car with no accessories. $31k for a CR-V seems nuts.

I was looking for a CVR-EXL and considered the lease quotes of $400-plus a month out of line with the $27,333 MSRP of the car. Consider the Acura RDX with an approx $33,000 MSRP which I leased yesterday in the NY area for $440/month including sls tx. with up front cash as follows:
$440 1st month payment
$595 Honda Finance Acquisition fee
plus registration costs

Picked up the vehicle today. Very happy.
$2000 discount off of MSRP, which is the listed invoice.
Full retail on parts with no install costs, versus a 33% discount from bernardiparts.com which would have given me a savings of approxiamtely $400 on parts that I would still have to install. You suggest I should have run from this agreement. Yes, most of them you can easily install yourself, some of which I have before on a previous Honda. However, I am okay with $400 for an authorized dealer to install fog lights, drill and mount the rear spoiler, (which if it rusts will be covered under warranty), along with the "installation" of the other accessories.
Where I live we have to pay tax on vehicles.
You say $395 for Document Fees are garbage.
We are business owners. What most people do not think about are the operating costs. A business owner has to pay for overhead. Salaries, and health insurance for employees. Real estate and all the taxes, utilities etc. that go along with that. Money that is tied up in product/parts inventory. Just to name a few. That dealer markup...its not all money in their pocket.
2008 Honda CR-V EXL with All Wheel Drive and Navigation.
(Upgraded with dealer from front wheel to all wheel drive since first posting)
Front Splash Guards
All Season Mats
Chrome Exhaust Cover
and 3M Scotch Guard Paint Protection Film
All Taxes, Tags, and Title
No other hidden fees. We did not finance, so no finance fees for the dealer to profit from. We did not negotiate a trade-in, so no inflated/under inflated #'s. Makes the water a lot clearer.

Hi, not meant to flame you or anything, but the 2000 MSRP discount does not mean that you will be paying invoice on your car, invoice for the car alone is $27033. Try adding what the accessories' cost online to the edmunds' invoice and you will realize that you are paying more. Another method would be to minus the accessories' cost from the price of your car and you will realize that you are paying more or less $28000 for your car (even with installation... i can find workshops who will install for $100-$150) and that thegraduate is probably right about overpaying
I only paid $26600 for my 08 CRV EXL w/Nav 4wd and I doubt that the accessories will even come up to $2000+++ in installation and buying, hence overpayment.
$399 document fee is ridiculous, I only paid $57 document fees, another $$ in the dealers' pocket. If a dealer can make do with $50+ doc fee, why can't the rest?
There is no other fees related to the sales, expect for the 6% IN sales tax... and also I paid by cash
