Many threads on negotiating design credits with various builders. Few tips from my (successful) experience:

1) You won't know if you don't ask so even if people here say "hell no, not possible", if you don't ask you are guaranteed no additional bonus
2) When asking for an additional incentive/credit/lot reduction, etc., offer something up that the builder would want to motivate them (e.g. when we asked, we also told them that if they can accommodate, we'd sign the contact to purchase. A smart sales person/builder will certainly entertain your offer if it can lead to a sale).
3) Be reasonable - try not to make it "if you don't give us X, we will go elsewhere"...you're looking for a win-win and not trying to back them into a corner

Good luck!
