ED discount does come out of a dealers allocation as they told you (non M cars do not, from my understanding). As far as discounts go, it is sort of a "depends" type of thing from what I have heard. M4s do not have as much discount as non M cars, for example. This also depends on part of the country.
I cant advise you on amount of time to order in advance because I have not done a Euro Delivery. You might want to ask that question in the Euro Delivery forum as well.
