They wouldn't let me leave with a deal sheet because we haven't agreed on final numbers yet. I'm told the $599 doc fee is non-negotiable and is charged to every person at every dealer of every manufacturer, at least in South Florida.
Those fees are high, and 1k over seems high. As an example I paid 400 doc fees and no prep fees. That is a SF scam to make sure they make their money. I found out when I went through a credit union service one time and they told me that those fees were bogus.

Contact Adrian, looks like you might be saving some real cash. Don't forget to report back so we all know how you fared.
