Bloomberg Article on 3-series Discounts

Apologies if this is old news, but I read in Bloomberg today:

"...BMWs 3-Series, which will be replaced by a new version in February, is being offered at discounts of 20 percent to 25 percent, and the new 1-Series compact is already getting marked down by about 11 percent, said Empson. Discounts on Mercedes vehicles are rising and currently range from 15 percent to 25 percent, while Audi cars are being offered at 5 percent to 8 percent off list price, he said."

With that said, how much truth is there to this? Is this discount currently being offered (maybe not advertised but the wiggle room is there during negotation)?

Reason I ask is a friend of mine is interested in purchasing a fully loaded 328 wagon w/ x-drive? Does anyone know how much these typically go for? And is this with or without this supposed "discount"?
