Also check Edmunds.com.  I'm sure you've already done
it, but you just in case.  They will give you all the
key prices, as well as "what other people are paying".
 Not sure how they come up with this, but it might
make you feel better when you finalize the deal for a
couple hundred less!

Or if the little lady doesn't think you are a good
negotiator, then you can just whip this out to make
her impressed (sorry, "more" impressed).
