1. It is certainly reasonable to ask for another salesperson. Ask to speak with the General Sales Manger or Used Car Manager. If they aren't willing to work with you, take your business elsewhere. The guy you already worked with will probably get some of the commission if you buy the car.

2. In my experience, when the internet price is significantly lower than the window price, the internet price is firm. Doesn't hurt to ask though.

3. On the cosmetic stuff, if it were economical to fix them, they would probably be fixed. Again, it doesn't hurt to ask, but don't expect much. What specifically are you talking about?

4. The dealer certainly has insurance, but in case of a claim, your insurance will be primary. I think it is reasonable to ask for your insurance to cover any potential damage to their property. If this were your business what would you do?
