OTD doesn't mean a thing when we
1. Don't know the state sales tax rate
2. You don't post the doc fee(s)
3. TTL varies from state to state.

Doesn't sound that good to me either. You mean to tell me you could not get them to at least throw in the wheel locks and mud guards and eliminate the destination fee? Guess if your happy that is all that matters. When I bought mine in May I got them eliminate destination fee and throw in mud flaps, wheel locks, remote start, cargo cover & fog lights!!! Was there negotiating for 4 hours and they knew we would walk if we didn't get the best deal.

I'm so thankful I stumbled upon this Forum. I'm not usually one to post in forums, but, I am currently in talks with my local Acura dealership and negotiating the purchase of a 2014 RDX. I've found a lot more confidence in my negotiations thanks to this forum, but I'm still not making a whole lot of progress. Wanted to get some feedback on where I sit with them currently - and would love any tips on how to get the price down from you pro negotiators...
The model is a 2014 RDX FWD Base and the dealer equips every model on the lot with:
Roof Rails ($650*)
Body side moldings ($259*)
Splash guards ($138*)
Appearance Protection Package
Wheel Locks ($56*)
*prices from Acura website
Currently, I'm at $36,500 + 5% MS State Sales Tax = $38,325 OTD
With the included equipment does this help justify their unwillingness to budge? Any suggestions?

Run away from that dealership unless you really want those add ons. As you have seen on this forum, most of the best purchase prices were achieved by emailing the internet sales manager of various dealerships to receive a quote for a specific model. No unnecessary trips to the dealership and very little negotiating. It seems that many times the best (lowest) price was not realized at the "local" dealership. You may have to travel to another city in MS or nearby state-FL to get a better price but sometimes the savings ($1,000. or more) will be well worth it. A few posts up, you will see that a forum contributor paid less than $33,000. (plus taxes and tags) for a 2014 RDX FWD. Good luck.
