Negotiation tips when building to order

I am planning on ordering an M-sport F30. I have 4 configurations below that I am still deciding on (not sure if it is relevant but I included it). I understand there’s some leverage when you are to negotiate for a floor model but what about when building one?

- M-Sport, Technology, Steering, Bluetooth, Sound, Park Distance, Premium Package Manual 328i (RWD) MSRP 49945

- M-Sport, Technology, Steering, Bluetooth, Sound, Park Distance, Premium Package 8ZPT 328xi (AWD) MSRP 50445

- M-Sport, Steering, Bluetooth, Sound, Park Distance Manual 335i (RWD) MSRP 51145

- M-Sport, Steering, Bluetooth, Sound, Park Distance Manual 335xi (AWD) MSRP 53545

I have a 2008 e93 335i appraised at around $30k for trade in.

In any case, I also have a $300 ultimate app voucher code and an upcoming $1000 Team USA driving credit. Since this is my first time building and ordering a car, would anyone care to share some negotiation tips?

Or do the dealers pretty much have me by the throat on this?
