Discounts are as tough to judge as responses but one thing that is and always will be a constant is weather. Since weather affects sales the prices in the areas affected by the weather drop considerably because for dealerships in some areas a discounted sale is better than no sale. If I had to guess I would have to say that you aren't going to find the same discounts in SC that you saw in Ohio because dealers in SC know their winter is almost over.
Don't let that scare you off; just because a dealership doesn't advertise a discount doesn't mean they won't give you one. Keep in mind that at any dealership (auto/motorcycle/pet store/tractor) the potential for discounts is completely dependant on their financial status. If a dealership is hurting because they can't get sales (weather, etc) their price will drop. If a dealership they can afford to give discounts but may opt to go for bust and increase their prices instead.
Bottom line is that this is the land of opportunity and opportunities are available for buyers and sellers. Make the best deal that you can and expect the dealership to do the same. Do your homework and be prepared to walk away for a crappy deal and you won't get screwed. If you decide to jump in with both feet and get a less than optimal deal remember what you did wrong and don't make the same mistakes next time.
