Question What is 'dealer delivery'?

I was looking at pricing for a new X1... I noticed that Dealer Delivery is $3000. I've never bought a brand new car (and probably wont) so I'd like to know what the heck this is.

Are new car buyers paying $3000 to the dealer just to place the order?

After a google or two I found:


The Justification:

Charges to be passed on to consumers.

* Inspect vehicle for damage ex-factory.
* Cleaning for inspection for damage.
* Recoup inward handling costs.
* Recoup floor-plan charges.
* Recoup stock insurance charges.
* Time to transfer to delivery area.
* Preparation of registration papers.
* Time to register, fit plates and fill with petrol.
* Collection of insurance, finance papers, etc.
* Administration charges for arranging finance.
* Delivery to customer other than at dealership.
* Valuation of trade-in (if applicable).
* Cost of number plates, frames, etc.
* Preparation and lodgement of transfer papers to transfer trade-in.
* Costs of vehicle used for registration and delivery to client.
* Cost of dealer plates, including comprehensive insurance.
* State taxes.

Half of this list sounds like marketing fluff to me...
