Smart, are you saying you got the amount off the OP mentioned? Or the amount I detailed?
I agree with you though: its a good idea to take a like for like quote/offer with you.
I went to my local dealer armed with a quote from a broker and one from a dealer in another county. The local dealer gave me £980 off the list price. This was in August before customer cars had been shipped. The dealer still made a small profit so everyone was happy.
