Is Lease Acquisition Fee Negotiable?

Looking to lease a VW Tiguan and the dealer says that VW implements a mandatory $699 acquisition fee on all new leases.

I saw Zach mention that "If it's taxable, it's negotiable."  On the price rundown, it's considered to be a "Taxable fee."  

Is it likely that I can negotiate this fee away, or at least down? 

Love the YAA youtube channel and community.  Thanks guys!
