Customer Asking To Quote "Real" Price

We quoted our customer with MSRP prices line by line, and then at the end gave them a single global discount before sub-totaling and adding the sales tax.

This serves 2 purposes:

1. Our customer can use each single MSRP as a price guide to calculate margin or use it directly to re-quote / re-sell to their own end users.

2. Avoid our customer to take our proposal to our competitor and bargain a better price with our quotation.

Now customer e-mailed us back to disclose line by line each item with their own discount. Best approach to handle this ??

1. Reply with a "sorry, our company policy is only quote MSRP prices" ??

2. Do as customer is asking us to.
