I just started looking at the Civic SI. While looking on Auto Trader.com I found many SI's with MSRP of $23,145.00. I talked with one dealer and was told they would take $1200.00 off of that. My question is with an MSRP of $23,145 what would be a decent discount. Also what kind of discounts have recent buyers on the site been getting? Also with that MSRP what would be a good offer to make on the car? Thanks.

That's pretty good. Around my area dealers are actually adding 3000 to the msrp. Its called market adjustment since the si is so rare. I bought mine aug 2011 and it took nearly 6 months for them to get another one in. Looked at a loaded si coupe a few months back priced at 30k and that wasn't the hfp edition.

Wow. My dealer down the Road had 3 in stock when I bought mine, going back a few times since, they've had at least 3 in stock, usually different ones.

IIRC, I got about $1900 off MSRP on my Si coupe w/nav back in June. That was after a lot of back-n-forth and walking out of the dealership. They called me at home shortly after and offered me the $1800 off and a better offer on my trade-in.

Back when I started looking for an Si about March of this year, the dealers around here 1. Didn't have white ones in stock and 2. Were marking them up $4-5K. And that was like every single dealer I called. I thought that crap was ridiculous. By chance one day, I went to a dealer and they said they had one in stock and I paid MSRP because I didn't want to wait anymore. I figured it was ok because I would've probably gotten reamed by any other dealer in the area.

I got $2,250 off the MSRP and agreed to pay their $250 documentation fee. They have $1400ish from invoice to MSRP, they have an extra $500 in dealer cash from Honda right now, and they have holdback (2% of MSRP).

Honda Civic Incentives and Rebates

23,145 MSRP
21,561 Invoice
21,061 Minus $500 Dealer Cash
20,598 minus holdback = actual cost to the dealer

so they made about $300 selling me the car plus anything honda financial services gives them for getting me to finance through them and any profit they have in their $250 documentation fee. dealerships are generally setup as multiple various little profit centers so the $250 fee wasn't negotiable. we were at $2000 off till i said i wouldn't pay the fee, they said you have to, i said ok, just lower the price $250, they said ok.
