Best Way To Initially Approach Dealer

Hello! I am trying to get close to replicating some of the broker deals I have seen on the forums and could use help with the first contact. I’m in Washington State so I don’t know how the deals will match up to everything else that gets posted on the forum.

How should I best contact the dealer? I know the vehicle I want, the discount I want, what the MF and residual are (thank you Edmunds), but I don’t know how to best say “here’s the terms I’m looking for” without scaring them off. And how do I get the dealer to tell me which lenders they work with? So far I haven’t made much traction and the dealer will just quote some numbers that are crazy high and that’s that.

Thank you!
