Thanks for confirming that, Jason. So if I am able to negotiate to pay say $500 over invoice (including options), then the diplomatic pricing entitlement really does me no good, as $500 over invoice is a lower price than 5% off MSRP. Is this correct?
I thought that maybe diplomatic pricing meant that the dealer's invoice was 5% less, in which case paying $500-$1000 over this (reduced) invoice would produce substantial added savings.

Last I checked, the Dipl. cost \ invoice \ wholesale price was lower
than USA POE - but not quite as low as European Deliv.
USA POE = $29,810
Euro Deliv = $27,720
Dipl = $28,320
Did the Euro Deliv almost 2 years ago....

The invoice is lower, as well, you should be able to negotiate a lower price than you would, otherwise.... then, take any incentives on top of that...
Very few dealers are going to be up on Diplomatic pricing.... and, those that are will probably try to take advantage of you...

First off. I want to thank everyone for providing such useful information, and for answering my questions. What a great forum.
I just got an offer from my dealer, which I think is a pretty good deal> it may not be as low as some others have gotten, but I hate to haggle and would rather not call a bunch of dealers to compare quotes if I could avoid it. here's the offer:
335i xDrive, with options
Dealer Offer: $51,900
If I can't do significantly better than that, I'll pull the trigger this Friday. If the most I'd be able to get is another $300-$500, I'm probably not going to bother. Your thoughts?

MSRP and the invoice price are both reduced by 5%.

Thanks for confirming that Jason. Dealer suggested that the Diplomatic rebate applied only to the base price (excluding options). If this is so, the true invoice price works out to be about $50,958--meaning I'm paying a little less than $1,000 over invoice.
Not a perfect deal, but not bad either. Don't feel like haggling and shopping around to lower the price by another $500-$600. I like the guy. It's the closest dealership. And since I'm leasing, the difference is maybe $5/month.
I'm happy. (I think.) MAybe I'll try to get free mats or something.
Thanks to everyone for your assistance.

Thanks for your advice kyfdx--especially for clarifying that incentives should be treated apart from any negotiation, and should be brought into the equation only after you've arrived at a price. Never looked at it that way. Alas, the only cash incentive available to me, at least in my area, is the $750 Loyalty contribution, which doesn't apply to me.
