    Edmunds price research is here:

    When you are receiving offers or negotiating prices, you have to make it clear about whether those numbers include the incentives (or not).

    Thanks for the reply and information. Since BMW's rebates are not controlled by the dealership what I am trying to understand is what is the typical dealer percentage discount rate that I can use in negotiating off the MSRP?

    What I'm being offered on a 530i MSRP with a MSRP of $60,570 is:
    4% dealer discount and $2,250 BMW rebate

    Is this a good deal?

    We don't rate deals, but I think you can do better, especially if it's a 2019 model.
