More car buying stuff

I'm reading up on some of the tactics car salesmen try to use before i start calling dealerships. I'm really tempted to start playing mind games with them, but it's probably not a good idea. At least i don't think so? Presumably it's better to let them think they're getting their way early on rather that having them get their guard up right away?

Edit: Actually, the first car i'm thinking of going to see is the one that's been in an accident. I'm kind of leary of it, but theoretically i might get a good deal, and it's on the way to the other dealerships so i'm kind of looking at it as a practice run. Perhaps i ought to take that one a little less seriously and not worry about the consequences of trying to throw them off their game, then i can start behaving at the other dealerships :)
