2) Insist...

Right off the bat, the dealer is marking up the money factor and acquisition fees. The former should be .00129 and the latter $795. I would negotiate those down. Some would also tell you not to go...

Never mind that doc fee; you need to get the money factor down to the buy rate of either .00129 or .00130 (not sure what the current MF is for March). The dealer is totally marking this up.
