Explain this scenario. I dont understand it. Orig invoice was 61,590, back out the 4500 eco you have 57,090 add $550 you have 57590 selling price new take off $0.75 per mile you get 47990. I would think this is a very fair first offer at negotiations.

They'd rather YOU as a knowledgeable buyer, order the new car elsewhere. They are reserving their cars for dumb ones.
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
