Went to a dealer today who offered a fair price, but not a good price on a 2012 ordered from the factory. I am going to move out of my local dealers and expand to those within 2 hour drive and see if I can get the price I am looking for on something in stock. Since I travel most of the midwest, I plan to start shopping in every city I visit until someone bites. I am not in a hurry and like you the best price will win. St Louis here I come.

You very well may have better luck outside your local dealers. I just checked Truecar to get an idea of pricing. As it turns out, a couple of dealers about 2 hours away have a price approx $600 cheaper than my local dealer. Personally, I'm ok driving 2 hours to save that kind of money.
As an alternative, I guess I could bring that lower price to my local dealer and give them the option to match. I can be very persuasive when the situation requires

I am negotiating 2012 Subaru Legacy with dealers and I have price $25900 for car with MSRP $28200. How much lower can they go? thanks

Where do you live and are you working with multiple dealers or just one? It all depends on your local market but if you negotiate well and lots of available cars are in your market you could probably get another $300-$500 off.

I am in CT on the border with NY, and close to NJ. I deal with few dealers at once. I looked in dealers inventory and there is not many LTD's with color and options I want. On truecar.com i found that dealers in NJ offers it even $600 lower than I am at the moment, but they have no similar vehicle in inventory. :/

I am signing a deal tomorrow. Once I have a signed deal, I will give you my numbers which will give you a better idea of the best possible number. Until then hang tight. Post again if I forget to put them up tomorrow night by 9pm.

Also dealers can sometimes pull a magic trick as I think my dealer is going to do for me. I searched, as you probably did, a 200mi radius and could not find the car I wanted but a local dealer was able to work some magic and get what I wanted here in 2 weeks. More tomorrow.

I've read some posts on this thread about how the dealers in New England (not sure how extensive geographically) are all routed through a distribution network that has a fee/surcharge that dealers outside of NE don't have. Not sure if this applies in CT.

Heard the same thing for SoNE. Different invoice than the rest of SoA.
