Depending on how much you drive, what the price difference may be, and your expected financing term, you may want to consider the iTouring w/Skyactiv. The fuel savings may make the monthly price of the touring pretty close to the Sport.
Back to your question though, I would certainly think you COULD get a better price from them if they accepted your offer so readily. Now that they know you were willing to pay 17.7k though, they might not be willing to negotiate. You could try to contact them again from a new e-mail and supply only your first name.
Another option, if you do have the luxury of having multiple mazda dealers around, is to get them to compete with one another. E-mailing the other dealerships and asking them to beat 17.7k can get your price down at the original dealership.

Thanks for the help djens1 and poetinsf. I ended up paying $16,500 base and $18,200 OTD when you include taxes and fees. If it wasn't for you guys I would've payed at least a thousand dollars more.
Thanks again, David

I contacted two dealers in Bay area for quoting Mazda3 i-sport automatic.
I got two quotes - $16,295 and $15,988. Plan to nego with $16,295 dealer and bring it down to ~$15,900.
0% APR 36months or $199/month 36mo lease deal is available.
1. is $15,900 good deal?
2. Any comment on which finance option is better deal?

I am planning to get 3i touring. Would you please tell more about the options you have. Is that Auto Transmission or Manual... How much out of the door.

3i touring doesn't have much option, and mine was a stick. The deal I made was $1100 below invoice, but ended up with $750 below. Make sure you get all deals in writing (email), else they'll find ways to chip off when you walk in. You should be able to do at least $1000 below invoice for this soon to be year old car. Good luck!
#4911 of 5141 MidAtlantic pricing

Looking for a Skyactiv stick best price. So far was able to find i Touring for 18157.32 OTR as best end of July price. Price included 6% sales tax, tags, title, tire tax, dealer costs, destination fee and this was itemized. It also included 500 dollar Mazda loyalty rebate.
Looking for end of August pricing - What do you forsee?
I know that the leased Skyactivs with low miles will be coming soon, so I am in no huury to buy. The depreciation loss is better served on the car lots than my driveway.

I'm in the market for an iTouring AT 4dr in the Atlanta area. Was given a price of $16594 before taxes and fees, and am wondering if this is the in ballpark for a purchase.
#4913 of 5141 Price check 2012 Mazda 3 iSport Auto
Aug 03, 2012 (9:12 pm)
Hi all, considering an OTD price of $17,500 on a 2012 4d iSport automatic in New England. Backing out the 6.25% tax and $125 title gets me to about $16,352 for the car alone (inclusive of destination, ad and doc fees).
According to TrueCar, this is roughly $2,100 off MSRP, $1,600 off factory invoice, $330 off dealer cost and $1,300 off average paid this week.
According to Edmunds, this is roughly $680 off TMV.
Strikes me as a little high compared to what you guys are seeing, but any thoughts welcome.
