Shopping for a new 550 Xdrive

Greetings all,

Lurking for the last couple of weeks reading the forums and finally signed up...

I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase a 550 xdrive and would like some ideas on how to best shop/negotiate for the best prices in the DC metro area. What is a normal percentage of MSRP should i be shooting for?

After reading some of the threads in this forum I have learned the following;
- ED provides the best net discount on MSRP
- Costco can provide a good starting point to negotiate
- 2011 5 series while available will yield the best "deal" at the dealership

What other sources can I use to negotiate at the dealership? Should i use a buying service? (my credit union offers a "buying service" at no charge, to locate and negotiate the best deal) I heard mixed reviews from users of the service...
