You should ask that dealer? In my career, I've worked for four BMW centers- none of them went below ED invoice. I don't even think they count towards quota-based bonuses since they're not...

What's causing the payment to be higher than usual is the upfront sales tax. If you're living in a monthly use tax, it's not fair to say "that's nuts" or "that's insane". That skews the payment...
