That's not entirely good advice. It's a great way to establish the price of the new vehicle separate from any possible trade in value. Dealers love to play games with numbers. When I bought my '09 WRX 5-door premium new, there was no haggling over the price because it was well below invoice with the V.I.P pricing. I did, however, work them pretty damn good for my trade and threatened to walk out twice before ending up with a ridiculous deal. I waited until the end of the month and went in late in the day when they were getting ready to close. That added pressure on them works to your advantage.
