Is the European Delivery discount supposed to be 5% of the Total MSRP for the car or is it 5% of the Base MSRP? In other words, is the 5% discount applied after the entire purchase price is calculated or is it only applied towards the Base MSRP before options are added? My dealer is waiting to hear back from AudiUSA in regards to the destination charge and ED orders, and I want to be 100% sure the rest of their numbers are correct before paying for the car.

Re: Right, that's the wording I was hoping to get clarification on...
"All MSRPs exclude taxes, title/documentary fees, registration, tags, Audi Dealer prep, labor and installation charges, insurance, <b>OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT AND ACCESSORIES</b>, certificate of compliance and non-compliance fees, and finance charges."
Is that referring to dealer installed options and accessories, or does that mean that the factory installed options are also excluded from the discount?
A) Total MSRP - ED Discount
B) Base MSRP - ED Discount + MSRP of Options
It better apply to total MSRP. I got 11.8% off total MSRP on my ED 335i sedan
Frankly, I don't think 5% total discount off the MSRP is such a great deal for mass market cars like A4/A6/A8. BMW and MB offer 7% off on most models. In the case of BMW, dealers will routinely offer 10% off MSRP before any negotiation. My lease was based on $800 over ED invoice which works out to $5,290 off MSRP of $44,900 (capitalized cost was $39,610) which is about 11.8% off.
I am hoping that Audi dealers have room for some further discounts beyond the 5%.
