Obviously the dealer would prefer to unload something they have on the lot, but is getting 6% off MSRP still somewhat reasonable for an order?
Sounds like most of us were able to get about 6% off. But, bear in mind we all ordered when supply was extremely limited. There was no such thing as X3s on the lot, and dealers were selling allocations 3-4 months ahead.
I've heard that there's much better availability nowadays, so I'd try and push for a bit more.
