Like asking for a free navigation package or a free set of rims for snow tires. Would things like that work at a dealer?
Knowing exactly what you want on the car makes the process much less confusing (to you). Everything they give you for "free" has a price to them. So instead of asking for $1,000 off you ask for a $1,000 set of rims for "free". It costs the dealer $600. So basically you're asking for $600 off. Concentrate on the car only and get dealers to "bid" for your business.
