yes, the internet ladies at Montclair and Bridgewater are both very nice, tho' the Bridgewater one was nicer.
According to my CU printout, the model you are seeking invoice price is $40,489 including destination. Dealer incentive is as listed on this sheet 1000, and holdback 1297. I think this printout was just before the month the incentives changed to 2000 for all Techs. CU's 'bottom line' price is $38192.
Stay strong, sometimes a personal visit helps. I know Springfield stayed in closer contact with me after I visited them.

I just have to say that I don't know all the ins and outs of car engines and all of that stuff but I purchased a 2009 TL just this past Thursday and it was delivered to my house (55 miles away) yesterday. I'm in the DC Metro and had to do a lot of work to get the TL in black/black so I ended up having to wait 1 day for the dealership to locate me one but it was worth it and I didn't have to drive 55 miles away to pick it up because it was delivered to me at home. This was after a lot of back and forth with 3 different dealerships. Anyway, I just have the TL and I paid $30.4K for an out of the door price of $33.4K and this was from a dealership in Gaithersburg, MD. I was at a dealership in Chevy Chase, MD first and they were trying to offer me a tech, I would have been settling on the color although black/parchment is still very beautiful, and they were willing to go $35.7 out of the door and I was trying to get them to go $34.8 because that is the amount my check was for and I wasn't spending a dime more. Needless to say that I ended up walking out of the door over $900 but I didn't want to pay it and I know they could have bent a little more on it but they weren't having it and neither was I. Anyway, I'm happy with my purchase and I know that would have been a great price for a tech model but oh well because I didn't want to come out of pocket with the extra money so I'm happy with what I have.

Gina, you got a wonderful car. I like the parchment also, but that color on the lower half of the interior is a dirt magnet. Congrats and enjoy it!! And, once you are comfortable, next time you go into a curve you normally brake for, just lift off the gas and 'ride thru' the turn. You will get what I mean after you do it!

Try dealerships in Westchester, NY. The offered me a TL-sh-awd with tech(MSRP $42,995) for $37,800. Also dealership cost are lower than CT dearlerships as per NY law. I am waiting till July, August for end of year sales as I see local inventory numbers going up and I expect Acura to up the $2,000 dealer cash back.

Thanks Chasboy! I'll try this so I can see what you're talking about. I'm still trying to get to know the car but I did manage to get my phone linked and use my mp3 player yesterday. I had a fully loaded Camry Hybrid before this that was totaled and these two cars couldn't be more different. All in all I'm having a good experience but I'll be on these forums looking to you guys for guidance. Thanks for the reply.
#10401 of 12077 Just got my new TL TECH SH-AWD
May 03, 2009 (6:53 am)
After a month of research and reading this board, I bought my new black TL TECH SH-AWD in SoCal yesterday. I went to several dealerships - walked out of one, but finally got a reasonable deal. $37,700 + TTL. I could have fought harder for $37,600 but they wont go much lower. Drove it around one day so far. Great car. Handling is night and day different than a front wheel drive car....

Smrtshpr, your discount as you listed is 15.75% which is great! I wouldn't hold my breath for additional discounts from Acura. If the economy starts any type of upswing, you might not see the 2G's either.
Gina, you won't get the gas mileage on this car like you got on the Camry, but you will enjoy the driving experience so much more, and...you will be noticed. My wife already got: "Whoa! ...nice car ma'am!"

U R correct but my current lease is up in the end of July. With inventories going up and the 2010's coming soon I must hope for the best. Dealer in Westchester called two weeks ago and left message that he could do a little better on price. Just want to help out new car buyers. There are not that many of us, we should at least get our monies worth.

Didn't know you had a lease. You are right, and your reasons are why I enjoy this thread.
