Depends on the dealer and type of parts. Range for us runs 10% to 40%. Most common is 20-25%. There’s no requirement – at least in the states.

Volume matters. If you buy less $1000 per month, I wouldn’t expect more than 10%. I’ve had great sucess sitting down with the parts manager and negotiate a better discount for a bigger commitment from me. It usually pays off with better quality parts, less come backs and happier customers. Also, don’t feel tied to the retail price the dealer suggests. You need to know your operating costs and build your own parts profit matrix accordingly.
