European Delivery purchasers: How much should i expect to pay over invoice?

Hello....Sorry for making yet another topic. I hope this topic is appropriate. As some of you might know, i am about to do the european delivery program...just need to get to the dealer and get the ball rolling(acutally, waitin on something to happen in real-life first, which will trigger this purchasing event!).
I have basically done TONS of analyzing on all the packages and options and have come to a final conclusions. But i have a few questions in regards to this ED program.

1. People have mentioned that they got their car for about 1,500 over European invoice. Is that without options correct?(i guess what i am asking is, as i sit here and add up my car price, should i be adding in the options at full price?).

2. Exactly what is possible when it comes to this ED program? I am so tempted to go to a dealer here in the DC area and be like 'well, the guy over there told me he'd give me 1,300 over ED invoice, can you do better?".

3. When it comes to financing it, if i tell them i can get a loan through peoplefirst(i think thats waht the place is called) for 5.89%, will they usually counter with a lower finance charge?

Sorry i seem to be analyzing this too much. But, as i mentioned a few times, i graduated college about a year ago and can finally afford the car of my dreams. I think my parents(my dad is a steel worker and my mom is a clerk at a clothing store) 'penny-pinching' ways have rubbed off on me slightly........thanks guys! Really this is a great site!

hate to say this, i bought mine from Bjeorn as well and would never do it again.

I bought my car from Bjeorn and I am not very happy with the service I got from him. If i had to do it again, I would rather pay couple hundred more and go through someone else. He was always late on calling back and the service wasn't there. Maybe he was having a bad day everytime I dealt with him, but when i am paying sub 40k for a car, that's not my concern. I have dealt with other dealerships and the service was so much better. But anyway, this just could be my personal experience as i am not American and the the sept. 11 definately did not help my kind of people (Indian, but I don't know why we are mistaken for middle eastern). I guess ignorance. Anyway, that's my 2cents.
