They will still try to nick you with junk fees so be on guard and question everything. The wording on the TL discount program says that the member will have to pay no more than 1% under invoice. It doesn't say that dealers may tack on their $100 admin fee or any other fee. Tell them you'll go elsewhere if you don't like how they're dealing with you. You can literally shop anywhere in the country with that TL code (depending on how far you're willing to go-- several of us bought out of state when we found our desired vehicle on someone else's lot). There should not be any negotiating to speak of, except with all the other things they will try to sell you. Those are up to you.
On that note, many members here are planning on extended warranty coverage since this is a new model. There are deals for that also and plenty of discussion on it here on the forum (simple search to find some good threads).
