How much of a discount can one expect on accessory pricing if purchasing via overseas delivery vs. buying at a dealer?

E.g., I've found this pricelist on the website of a local dealer, but it's listed in the OSD section of the website. Should I assume these are OSD accessory prices?

If so, are dealer MSRPs for accessories listed anywhere (bonus points if listed in Canadian Dollars!)? All I've been able to find is the catalog online. http://accessories.volvocars.com/en-ca/XC90%2816-%29/2016/T6

I'm debating whether I want to order through the dealer or go down the OSD route. Obviously there's the discounts relative to the MSRP on the vehicle if doing OSD, but if the accessories are also much cheaper via OSD (e.g., on bigger ticket items like winter wheels/tires), then it might make the idea of waiting for an OSD window to open up worthwhile.

Do you know what the OSD price is for the T8 R-Design?? I could never find the actual answer and do you still have to pay the freight/PDI with OSD?

Just trying to see what the actual saving is vs buying locally. TIA!

Here's the Canadian OSD price list: http://www.hamiltonvolvo.com/content/images/GenericPage/my16-xc90-mc39-edp_8D276559DA87C0B17.pdf

And according to the dealer I spoke to, you don't have to pay Freight and PDI if you go the OSD route. On a Momentum+ with basically all of the options/packages except air suspension, I was quoted a savings of about $3700 CAD to go OSD (works out to roughly $1700 off MSRP, and the rest is the savings on freight/PDI). If the accessories are also significantly cheaper and I can add things like a set of Winter Tires/wheels / Apple CarPlay and other stuff I'll need (floor mats, mud flaps, etc.), it might make waiting even more compelling...

Thanks! So is the Freight/PDI $1,815 plus tax? So looks like the savings on T8 R-Design is only $1,100 plus freight/PDI saving. But looks like prices for all options are the same no saving. I thought saving would have been little higher with OSD oh well.

You also have the option with OSD of purchasing accessories when you take delivery. We added a few extra things when we were in Sweden because they were a little bit cheaper there than they would have been here.

Thanks, that's exactly what I'm interested in.

Do you know how much cheaper these OSD accessories were vs. buying from the dealer?

Is it significant? E.g., for something like Winter Tires, or some of the appearance packages which have costs in the thousands of dollars, are we talking about savings in the tens, hundreds or thousands of dollars when going OSD vs. dealer? Was the OSD pricing consistent with the first price list I linked to?
