how do you get a discount off list price on a BMW 1 in the UK

A few days back I went to the main dealer and asked for PCP contract (no part-ex) and a discount of the list price. He gave me a total of 48 off, great but not enough, I asked for more but they refused even if I added some attentional optional extras, servicing and shine protection.

I tried another main dealer and they had all my details already in the computer and refused to discuss prices unless I was ready to put down the deposit of 500. Worse still I asked them to price my own car as part ex-change and they under valued it by 1000, VW offered 8250, Ford offered 8000 and Audi 8000 but BMW offered 7000ish but again he wasn't going to discuss this without the deposit first.

Out of interest webuyanycar offered 8360 for my car an Audi A3.

How much discount should I be looking to achieve on a BMW 118d sport standard spec no metallic paint? Anyone got any tips or tricks for getting the list price down?
