Agree with you. Over the years, I've found that it's better to do your homework and then go in with a firm offer that you're happy with and that's reasonable for the dealer. Based on my research at the time, I felt that I'd be satisfied with $3K off on a car with MSRP around $60K. The dealer agreed to this, and then we both discovered that the PCM option was priced $300+ higher than Porsche was showing on the web site. The salesperson said, "I'll throw in the difference," and we had a deal. I could probably have squeezed out more, but this strategy makes the sales process a lot more friendly and pleasant than dancing around over a few additional dollars.
