Invoice price for Premium Package on 530i?

I have just placed an order for a 530i SMG, ZPP, ZSP, 0416, ZPS. My dealer tells me the invoice on the Premium Package is $1,710. The price sheet on bimmerfest.com lists it as $1,640.

Bimmerfest - $1,640 (http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/att...2&d=1122481495)
Dealer - $1,710
KBB - $1,710 (http://www.kbb.com/kb/ki.dll/kw.kc.n...6BMBS_I;060101)
Edmunds - $1,710 (http://www.edmunds.com/new/2006/bmw/...on=1&x=78&y=17)

The funny thing is, all the other list priced $1,800 options, like ZPS and Nav, have invoice price of $1,640 - I thought invoice was a fixed percentage of list for options?

Which one is correct? Not sure I can afford the extra $70... Just kidding. More curious than anything.

TIA,

Chris.

Why don't you have the dealer show you the report from their system for your car showing MSRP and invoice?

Their system shows it as $1710

But being in IT, they can configure their system to whatever they want. Their system shows list and invoice pricing, for all options. Everything else seems correct.

True--but would it be worth the effort for such a small amount? BMW does change invoice prices a few times a year (most items don't change) so this could be the reason.

You're correct

I'm more curious than anything. There is probably some story behind how the price was distributed correctly/incorrectly.
