I know nothing about the NAV since never inquired on that from either Mercedes or Porsche which are the two places I have talked to about doing an ED. All I remember for Porsche is they had a discount or credit of some sort, I think it was a couple thousand dollars and you could apply it to the car, to the plane tickets, to hotels or whatever you wanted to do. I maybe even posted the number back when I posted in here about my driving impressions of their diesel SUV. From what little I found online the Porsche dealers can discount a car being ED if they desire to. I'd imagine it is kind of like with Mercedes where for the longest time I kept getting told the deal is with Mercedes direct and not the dealer so they can't discount any more than the 7% then finally I find someone willing to do 9% and then after a long time I find someone else willing to do 11%
