fred: Thanks for the reply. What you describe sounds very similar to what I experienced back in 2000. Three of the five dealers I emailed offered me invoice right off the bat. When I got to the dealership, they tried to add a dealer prep fee, which I declined to pay. It was all wrapped up in about one half hour. It was at the end of the month, at the end of the day just before a summer holiday weekend. I could tell everyone was itching to get out of there. Pretty painless.
I didn't have a trade-in as I planned to sell my other car privately. I may opt to sell my Forester privately again since the demand for used Foresters seems to be strong and I'll be paying cash for my new one. It depends on what they offer for my trade in, but I'm not sure I want to complicate the process with a trade in.... we will see.
It sounds like things aren't too much different than they were almost 13 years ago.
Since you appear to have some inside information from having worked in the industry, what do you think is feasible amount to shoot for under invoice if I factory order the car? Also, would the dealer be willing to negotiate the price of a trade in separate from the purchase price of the new car?
Thanks for your time.

Picked up 2013 Subaru Impreza Sports Limited last weekend. Emailed several dealers to find out how much they'd take off from MSRP by going through the internet sales manager. They can do $1400 off MSRP.
Since I talked with an actual sales person the night before, thought it'd be right to go back to him and tell him to take $1400 off MSRP. If you are firm with them saying another dealer is going to do $1400 off, they are likely to match it.
2013 Subaru Impreza Sports Limited Satin White with
All season floor mats
Rear seat protector
Cargo nets (stuff I don't need)
Rear bumper applique
Aero mud flaps-splash guard
$23188 after $1400 off MSRP.
Should have also negotiated for auto dimming mirror with compass.
Happy with this deal. $23k for AWD that gets ~32mpg.

There's a small chance I may buy the exact same car, even down to the color. Lemme know how you like it.

May I ask how you got such a good deal? They're trying to get me for $24k OTD on a sports premium. Not a good price in my opinion.

Just to clarify, the price was $23188+tax/license/fees. OTD was ~$25k. So $24k for Sports Premium sounds about right. See if you can squeeze them some more. But then they'd play the guilt trip and make you look cheap.
One beef I had was that they said Subaru of America Finance will not accept credit card as form of downpayment. I've bought BMW, MBZ, Mini using credit card as downpayment to take advantage of frequent flier miles.
So if anyone had recently paid downpayment with a credit card, please let me know. Then I'll go back and say LIAR and reflect that in the survey.

I cannot believed I was lied to. A co-worker bought a WRX several weeks after I got mine, and he paid downpayment with his credit card.
My dealer said it was Subaru of America Financing that will not accept credit card as form of downpayment. What a BS.
As payback, I gave them all 1's in their stupid survey.
