Will dealers haggle over a bogus destination fee? (Civic LX 2L)

Just got back from the dealership, no purchase. When I walked out we were at $21,000 flat for a new LX 2 Liter (final price, no trade in). I really don't know much about car buying and told them as such (later my wife said to never say that to a rep again :s )

I have documentation from them and they verbally said the price is good for the month, but the $1,299 destination fee seems...high, based off my quick internet search. Everywhere else I see $920. I figure if I show up tomorrow then they'll assume there's no need to haggle anymore and stick to 21, is this worth fighting over? Is this price even any good? :D

    The destination fee is part of the factory window sticker; I've never known a dealer to try and mark this up.

    You aren't in Florida, by any chance?

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and let us know! Post a pic of your new purchase or lease!

    I was looking at a dealership from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, WI

    Still haven't seen any destination fee's this high on any sedan from my research
