2016 invoice pricing?

My 2016 Q3 Prestige Quattro is arriving in 2 weeks. Purchase price is "invoice." Does anyone have a version of the 2016 Order Guide with invoice pricing? My dealer said he is estimating purchase price (6% off MSRP) until the car arrives, but it seems like the actual invoice pricing should be available now.

Thanks!

{It IS available and has been for about 3 weeks - if he won't give it to you, PM me your Commission Number or VIN and I'll get it for you ...your car is PRICED NOW !!}

I screwed up and didn't read the note above correctly - I thought his car was already here for a few weeks. While "invoice" pricing info has been available for about a month or so, it falls right at about 6% (give or take roundoff) for everything except transportation and gas guzzler (if applicable). The actual invoice follows Customs Clearance whereby a legal window sticker (called a Monroney for the guy who supported legislation to have it) is then attached to the car. So only after the car has physically arrived and cleared, can the "real" invoice be available. I apologize for jumping the gun so to speak ...

Very interesting - I was given a VIN on July 14th but am still waiting for the official pricing from my broker who is waiting to get it from the Audi sales guy. He sent me a sample invoice that is very close to mine in terms of model and options. Nice deal to get at invoice....Are you also able to get mine Roger?

Wow - It appears to be pretty common to get the Q3 for less than MSRP, but if you were able to buy it for less than dealer invoice, then congrats. I don't believe I've seen anyone else do that on this formum (2015 or 2016), but maybe I missed it.

You should have a Commission Number as soon as your order hits Order Intake status - about a week or so after your ABS actually orders the car. If he's just trying to "locate" a car for you, only when he finds it would you get the Comm Number (and VIN at the same time) cuz these located cars are (have been) already ordered for some time and they're just unsold and in the pipeline.

OK you guys are making me feel sad :-) I didn't bother with the local dealer because they can sell every car they can get according to the sales person.. the broker has a standard discount off MSRP for a given brand/model and some are more heavily discounted than others. According to Edmonds it appeared that average was around $400 over invoice on the Q3. My wife's Subaru was invoice +$200 using the Costco program. So congrats to you who were able to get the dealer under invoice. Surprising on this car in particular. Perhaps you can share negotiating tips :-)

Don't feel sad - most folks pay what it takes to get the car they want - period. That's just how a free market works. You could have joined the Audi Club of America for $50 waited 6 months and as an Audi Club member - get 6% off or invoice... even more with more knowledge and negotiating.
