I checked with a local dealer today and they said they usually sell the ED at 2k above invoice.
Yes, BMW essentially controls how many cars each dealer can sell.

Right now, all ED cars, except M models, come out of a separate allocation pool. It means these are bonus sales for the dealership. And despite the limitation on allocations for ED M cars, dealerships are still willing to go pretty close to invoice.

You can negotiate further with your dealership, I got it down to $1k over invoice and others have gone lower.
