Hi Ade, you've been doing your research.
The typical range is from 8 to 12% off (per other posts, and from chatting with my neighbor, who manages a domestic car dealership.
Hondas seem to follow that rule of thumb, and I expect to see 10% off MSRP relatively soon after the new models hit the showroom (apparently some have already been sold). We still don't have TMV or invoice or MSRP pricing for the 2017s yet.
The current Touring has an invoice of $32,236 with destination. Add, oh, $500 or so to that for the new invoice and maybe $32,500 will be doable at some point.
Let's also assume MSRP pops to $34,800 - that would put 10% off MSRP at $31,320. I don't think that will be feasible. Even 8% off may be slow in coming ($32,016) since demand is going to be strong I think.
In other predictions, Washington will beat Bama and go on to win the national championship and Eli Manning will give his older brother a lot of heartburn by taking his third Superbowl Ring.
You're more than half way then.
That's all anecdotal stuff though. Where's the data?
German Cars Are Less Reliable Than You Think, Finds Warranty Wise (fleetpoint.org)
Spot delivery is a scam to put you into a car, hide or sell your trade-in, if any, and try to embarrass you after you've shown the car to family and friends so that you'll be reluctant to turn it back over to the dealer.
If you don't qualify for the loan for whatever reason, when you go back to the dealer they'll try to squeeze a bunch of money out of you to redo the loan. Or they'll try to stick you with a mileage charge and maybe a big return fee.
Personally, I'd call the sales manager today and tell them to take the car back and unwind the deal. When you get approved, then you can proceed.
If the sales manager blows you off, I'd contact my consumer protection agency and file a complaint

Odd, I update my Garmin about every three months or so with the free updates. They still miss a lot of new roads though.
