From what I've read here and else where it depends on the dealer, but people have been able to pay anywhere from invoice to 5% under invoice on custom orders.
I've been emailing dealerships saying exactly what I want to order and that I want to pay something similar to 2014 TrueCar pricing, which is roughly 2.5-3% under invoice. They've all been willing to play ball so far. I hope to email all 30 local dealers tomorrow with exactly what I want and exactly what I want to pay (5% under invoice) and see if anyone bites. Then, give my most local dealer a chance to beat it. Although I just walked away from a 5% under deal with them this weekend, so they might not love me right now.
