One technique I've seen recommended a lot on the car forums that I frequent is to simply email multiple dealers with the exact configuration that you want, letting them know that you're asking multiple dealers for their price, that you're ready to buy, that you know exactly what car and options you want, and that you won't put up with any haggling - you want the best price on the exact car you describe.

I haven't done this (mainly because the last 4 cars I bought have been used) but I've read of guys on the BMW forums who do this with good results. They will often contact 15-20 dealers across multiple states, and with a Toyota there are probably even more in your area. Some dealers will simply not respond, some will reply with junk, but others will be happy to deal with a customer who knows exactly what they want, and who is ready to do a deal with minimal effort on their part.

The best part of this is that you only have to compose the email once, and then just find the dealer emails.
