I think the $3-5k under invoice is a bit much.
I'd suggest invoice minus holdback. If there are incentives you should get those too.
I don't see a point in offering below cost, though, it just puts the buyer-seller relationship on rocky ground for no real benefit.

Agree. Invoice minus cash incentives (if any), minus the holdback, is a good starting point and then work upwards from there. But making unrealistic offers like $3-5K below invoice up-front, simply projects the idea to the dealer that the fellow is not serious and is essentially wasting everyone's time.
My time is far too valuable to be playing such useless games, IMO, and I prefer making a realistic offer upfront (after doing my research before setting foot in the dealership) and if everything works out well, closing the deal in a short period of time.

I got a left over 2009 5 door WRX with premium package for 25K +TTL in Los Angeles.
The car also had wheels front spoiler and some STI goodies (shift knob, battery tie down, Oil cap, etc)
Also got 4 years 0%.

Wow, nice deal. 4 year is a very long term for no interest, too.

I love this car but the insurance would be more than my current 08 BMW 335. To many kids buying these and racing/wrecking them. I'm 39 with few tickets btw.

BMWs are cheap to insure... and Imprezas are decidedly not...
However, my base Impreza was recently re-rated (why, I'm not sure), and is now the same premium as our X3.. Previously, it was 30% higher..

Maybe claims have gone down now that stability control is standard? That would explain it.

Either that.... or, some of the safety equipment didn't get acknowledged with a new model... and, it changed, once that mistake was rectified..
Pretty big drop... and, I'm not complaining... = $15/mo.
