Simplified. What percentage off the CX-5 sticker?

I didn't include the fees in this post because I was trying to follow the guidelines of this thread (post #1) by eliminating the wide-ranging fees from the equation, and compare offers based on % off of dealer msrp.

But if it helps anyone further on this thread, here is the total with "service fees":
New 2020 Mazda CX-5 GTR in Machine Gray Metallic
MSRP - $36,535
Net Selling Price: $30,391
Services Fee: $297
Total: $30,688
16% off
Purchased mid-Jan 2021.
Is that the Total Price you ended up paying? Can you tell me which dealership was this? I am looking for a 2020 GTR.
 
2021 Mazda CX5 Carbon Edition AWD Turbo

A. 10% off MSRP
B. +$3500 with trade in value

Overall, I am pleased with this deal and CUV.

I didn't trade anything in. The email solicitation method and timing at the end of the month (or in my case, end of the year) works. See attached bill of sale.
Hi Guateman, 13% or $3,863.41 off MSRP is amazing. In addition, you took advantage of the $750 loyalty and the $1,000 Cash for paying cash (I assume you didn't use financing). I am sure EOY/EOM timing played a role to get such discount but it's still so unusual. Was your vehicle a demo by any chance? Thx

And still people are coming here with OTD price questions, SMH. However, if you ask only discuss OTD with the dealer or discuss the purchase based on monthly payments, you will become your dealer's best friend.
@hal2 The way I see it, many people are ignorant (including myself) ...and at the end of the day, that is a part of the overall price of the car , unless you are not paying any taxes or getting away with it. It just helps others get an estimate of what would they end up paying. Taxes can differ +- 1% , but it equips the users with much better information. If we were to not pay taxes, fantastic but it would range between 2K-3K depending on trim and State where one resides and people would assess whether they are financially stable to make that investment. I see nothing wrong if somebody provides a breakdown like ; Sale Price :X My OTD was : X + 7% Tax + tag/title = $$$$$$
So take that as your estimate to shop and negotiate and may be work your way backwards on the pricing.

This is absolutely wrong, and is why OTD numbers are completely useless on internet forums.
Combined state & local tax rates vary from 0% all they way to over 10%.
In addition, DMV fees to register a car can vary wildly, from $20 to $2500.

So two people can buy the same car for the same price, say $40K.
But their OTD price can vary by more than $5000, driven entirely by government fees.

You MUST exclude all government-mandated fees from the prices you post here....
Sales tax, tags, registration, title, plates, tire fees, ect.

I'll add to this - a lot of people still want to discuss OTD as they feel that all money paid still comes out of their pocket, so I'll put this as simply as possible..... You should only be concerned with what dollars are going *to the dealer * as those are the only negotiable dollars, including DOC fees.
 
Another issue to consider...
You are likely NOT getting apples-to-apples quotes by soliciting OTD offers from multiple dealers.
Dealers often give OTD quotes based on the sales tax rate for the dealership's location.
And since sales tax rates vary across each city, county and state, the OTD calculations can be off.

Yeah, I'll never understand people that are insistent on OTD pricing on the internet. Maybe they're the same ones that shop based on monthly payment instead of final price.
