This is something of a shot in the dark because I don't know where in California you're located but I did a bit of research and played with the numbers I located.
First, MSRP for the 2015 650 LT is $8699 - a starting point for what follows. A Cal state web site calculates sales tax as $783 and registration/title fees as $141. That's for LA county but I chose what I thought might be an expensive county for arguement sake. From the dealer's OTD total of $10445 subtract the $8699 MSRP and $783 and $141. That leaves $822 unaccounted for. This amount could only be dealer charges - destination charge, assembly, document fee, it's Tuesday and you have blond hair fees, and God knows what else. Seems rather greedy to me.
Seems to me they aren't very interested in selling to you or they're very confident about selling all they can get at full price no matter who might walk into their dealership.
Shop around; you're likely to find a better deal from a customer oriented dealer. Have to believe California still has a few around.
