You are correct. I've considered the above and their ballpark numbers for my current vehicle were on par with what kbb.com was suggesting that I should expect. Ultimately, just as you said, I'll have to see what the numbers would work out to.

Not sure if yours is CPO, but mine is so thats the remainders of the factory 4yr 50,000 mile + an additional 2 years up until 100,000 miles.
My price is $58,000 - the dealer was asking ~$65,000
Congrats! Sounds like an awesome car. The one I am looking at is not CPO'd, but I would probably end up getting the extended maintenance and warranty in the future. I'm kicking myself for not getting it for my E46. Out of curiosity, if you dont mind me asking, are you financing through the dealer or your own bank/credit union? My credit union is offering me 2.99% right now and it seems like a pretty legit rate.
