What is wrong with this invoice price calculation

The dealer says when he puts the order into the system the invoice price comes in at $932 more than this but cannot see a breakdown to determine where that extra cost is.

I used 94% of base, 92% of parts, and invoice cost of accessories.

MSRP Invoice
440i x-drive gran coupe $ 50,500 $ 47,470
Tanzanite Blue Metallic $ 1,950 $ 1,794 X10
Golden Brown Ext. Merino Leather $ 3,750 $ 3,450 ZAG8
Dark Red Sycamore Wood trim $ 1,080 $ 994 XE5
PREMIUM PACKAGE $ 2,000 $ 1,840 ZL1
M SPORT PACKAGE $ 2,550 $ 2,346 ZMP
Adaptive M Suspension $ 700 $ 644 2VF
19" M Ferric Grey DoubleSpoke Wheels Style 704 M with Mixed Performance Tires (19x8.0, 255/40 R19 front and 19x8.5, 255/35 R19 rear) $ 900 $ 828 21Z
EXECUTIVE PACKAGE $ 2,100 $ 1,932 ZPX
OPTIONS
Active Cruise Control $ 1,200 $ 1,104 5DF
Heated Steering Wheel $ 190 $ 175 248
Heated Rear Seats $ 350 $ 322 496
Active Blind Spot Detection $ 500 $ 460 5AG
Active Driving Assistant $ 500 $ 460 5AS
Wireless Charging $ 500 $ 460 6NW
ACCESSORIES
M Performance Power & Sound $ 3,195 $ 2,515 Z11
Black Kidney Grilles $ 230 $ 170 Z06
Stainless steel MPPSK exhaust tips $ 300 $ 190 Z1T

Destination & Handling $ 995 $ 995
TOTAL $ 73,490 $ 68,148

"In 2016 the difference in price between MSRP and invoice was 8 percent for the vehicle and 9 percent for options and packages. For 2017 the discount between MSRP and invoice is 7 percent for the vehicle and options and packages being 8 percent."

I've used .93/.92 myself on a recent order and gotten within $5 of the invoice given to me by another dealer so it seems accurate. But that adjustment from your .94/.92 leads you in the opposite direction from the what your dealer is quoting you so I'm guessing the accessories are way off. I would remove the accessories, recalculate your invoice price, and ask him what he sees.

Honestly tell him to just print out the build with the invoice amounts. If he is a transparent CA he will. Compare line by line and you will be able to find the difference.

He refused. When I asked for the price without the accessories he said there was too much back and forth. There wasn't, just him changing prices on me.

He is a board member who offered to help out other board members so I was giving him the benefit of the doubt.

I ended up getting a much better deal with a different dealer which I will post once it is all signed and confirmed.
