MSRP: $21,015
X Plan is $20,114
95% of MSRP.
Invoice is 94.7% of MSRP on this vehicle.

A/Z plan is $19,283
91.7% of MSRP.

$900 is $900 but still, complaining about $400 seems trivial to me. Just my .02 however. Plus how many people qualify for A/Z plan, not a lot here.
Again it was just for reference, but it was more than a $400 difference in 2012 when I was looking. Sorry, I know I don't sell cars every single day, but since I had qualified for both at the time I was buying a car I took advantage of the better price knowing that there was still some money in the deal for the dealer, but there was no need to be combative about the numbers at the time.

I'm not sure why people like fighting over $100.

It was closer to 4% + 150 over either a plan or over invoice for x plan, but still that can make the difference between going with a better equipped car or a more entry level model.
