Have you run your specifics thru truecar.com & edmunds.com's "true market value" estimator? Good places to get real-world prices.

The deal is done, and I must admit I'm happily surprised that I was able to negotiate this vehicle down to $600 over invoice. Lease is 36 month, 12K/yr, no $ down. Used $1000 Drive for the Team, $750...
