Thing is that dealers don't sell outside of allocations at the dealer.... in most cases the ED orders are the one coming out of allocation ... I haven't seen dealers sell cars out of allocation at the dealership but I think somebody mention that sometimes BMW lets dealers do that when they want to really move some cars....

So no only is that there is demand cause the car just came out but also all the ED order cars that usually come outside of allocation, now come from the dealer allocation so there are even less supply...

So if a dealer 6 allocations a month and they sell 3 non-ED and 3 ED they will try to make the most and not give you much discount....

Now if they get 6 allocations and they sell 3 non-ED and 3 ED and the 3 ED don't come out of their allocation... then they have 3 more to sell so they might be willing to discount those more as they will have to sell 3 more cars
