Check the TMV price
you will get the invoice number there and what people are paying. I paid about $150 below invoice in early December before the rebates. I also put about 25% down and negotiated a rate that was 3/4' of a point below gms rate and the dealer made money on that.
You can also go through capitol one auto buying, depending on area and model they are about $100 over invoice for a car on the lot which can get you a starting price before you go into the dealer. I did all my research on-line, found the vehicle equipped the way I wanted then called the sales manger at the local dealer and asked him if he wanted to sell a car. He brought it from another dealer and sold it for the price I wanted.
You may want to take a look at fighting chances package and methods for purchasing. I found it very helpful.
I started here at edmunds and worked my way around.
Good luck - let us know how you do if you buy

My dealer is asking $25,485 for it. That already below $150 below invoice,with the additional $3,000 GM is currently offering...

I managed to get the CXL,which listed for $29,995 for $17,200! I did have $3,400 in Gm credit card earnings,plus a further $2,000 off because my new 2001 Catera proved to be a bit "disappointing"...but still,GM is positively giving these cars away...
#46 of 63 Shopping for new 2007 Lucerne CXL V-8
Sep 04, 2008 (1:17 pm)
I am shopping for a new Lucerne CXL V-8. I am starting in Florida (where I live) and going north. These vehicles are not included in the GM employee pricing scheme ongoing, so they are another story.
I would buy for 30% off MSRP, but I am encountering resistance at securing any more than 22.5% off MSRP.
Any ideas on where I could go to look for a better deal?

I think that 30% off sticker will be very hard to get. You could try to find ads in the Washington Post or NY Times,or other big city papers. Those advertised priced will probably be near the least you can find.
You can always offer that price at a few dealerships,adding a %point or two if unsuccessful.

I found several in the range of 27-31% off of MSRP; now my problem is the GMAC pull ahead does not give me enough relief from my lease balance. I would owe just over $1,000.00 if I buy now. On October 1st, if GMAC increases its pull ahead, then I would be in a much better position.

I plan on taking delivery today of a 2008 White Diamond CXL V6 with every option except NAV. Sticker is about $35,500 and I got it for about $24,000 (~32% off) plus taxes etc. I do have the GM supplier discount at $3,500 plus $3,000 bonus for the Supplier Program. Out the door I am at $26,750 and I finally get a car with cooled seats!

I am happy for you at such an acquisition.
I was recently offered a new platinum 2008 CXS V-8, MSRP $39,100 for $31,500.00 out the door under the supplier program with all the rebates, etc., but when I learned that my GM Card Points were ineligible for this program I backed out. I had $1,931.00 in points and I wanted to use them. There was no legitimate reason why I should be unable to exercise them with this kind of deal.
Instead, I selected a new light quartz metallic 2007 CXL V-8, MSRP $32,500.00, which after negotating it down, and subtracting my points, came to $21,500.00 out the door. I am to pick up the car this weekend. The only option is a sunroof, but it has the color I most wanted, with cocoa steering wheel, dash, and carpet and shale seats and panels.

Pull ahead is now at four months.

Four months for an '08 or '09, not an '07. It's always a gimmick with GM, or GMAC.
