    If you buy a good car magazine, like Top Gear Magazine, they have researched this and give a target actual price to pay after discount.

    Right now dealers are desperate for new car sales. It’s very much a buyers market. If your a cash buyer then if you find the car you want offer say 25% less than the list price. You should also be able to get the dealer to throw in at least 6 month’s road tax (ask for 1 year) and ask for a full petrol tank as well.

    Look at the prices on car supermarkets websites like trade sales of slough. Find with google.

    To "expect" a discount implies that you have a right to get the car cheaper than advertised. You don’t.

    If you go in with the attitude that you "expect" a discount, most dealers will immediately refuse.

    "Discuss", "negotiate" or "request". But don’t "expect".
