Default What price is a good deal on a 2005 WRX?

I'm moving to San Diego, CA next week and looking to pick up an 2005 WRX Sedan in the area. I'm currently negotiating with two dealerships and their initial offers are as follows.

2005 Aspen White WRX Sedan: no options

Selling Price: $22,450
OTD: $24,550.24

2005 Crystal Grey WRX Sedan: auto dimming mirror/ compass, security system upgrade kit, and rear spoiler

Selling Price: $23,188
OTD: $25,347.43

How much more room do I have to negotiate?

I also can't decide between white & grey

Any price you're happy with.

But seriously. Im July I paid 200 under invoice on car and any options. No rebates at that time. I'd think without considering rebates you should at least be able to get what I got.

The aspen white opening price listed above is $248 below invoice.

Now it is a great price, but I'm looking to get the most car for the least amount of money, just like anyone else.

Would $23,500 drive out be impossible? Has anyone come close to that figure?

The dealer near me offered me a 2005 White WRX for 22,000/24,000 OTD with no options. I saw a WRB WRX sitting right next to it with dimming mirrior, sunroof, heated seats, and extended armrest. I told the dealer I will buy the WRB WRX with the options for the same price he was asking for the white one with no options. I made sure to tell him that my offer is firm, I would not negotiate. He talked to his manager and I drove out of the dealer just a few days ago with my loaded WRB WRX for 24,000 OTD. Take your time and find a dealer that is willing to give you a WRX with some options on it for that price; namely the sunroof. It is totally worth it.

Dealer invoice means nothing. If they were true, then both of our cars were sold to us at a loss to the dealer, which I highly doubt. I would say take your time, but not at a dealership. Get as many quotes as you can, and then take the two lowest and try to get them to fight over your sale. Haggling at the dealership is a waste of time. If you come in with quotes they know you are serious and don't make you sit there while they go B.S. with the sales manager.

You make a good point. I wouldn't say that the options are a necessity, but it would be nice to get a fair amount of additions. I have no use for a sunroof (don't see the point) but other than that I completely agree with what you have to say. It's great to know that the price I'm looking at is attainable!

Yea, I ask all salespeople for the dealer invoice so I can see dealer cost (or at least what is publicly available, then I can fully see how much money I have to negotiate within ... between invoice and dealer cost. I have not nor will ever pay over invoice on any car ever.

I'm definitely going to be doing all my haggling behind a keyboard, and so far it's worked out great.
