If you mean MSRP, invoice is cost, I completely agree. I'd actually prefer to by the car about 1,190 miles from my house, fly there (for a few hundred bucks), drive home, and then drop the car off at the dealer for the 1,200 mile service. By the time you take the car out on roads you're familiar with, you can throw the whole RPM range at them.
The best deal I could find just happened to be 20 miles from my house. Needless to say, I will be burning through a lot of gas putting on highway mileage, without really going anywhere, in the first week or two I have the car.
