I am aware of these numbers on the 2011s. I am wondering how much more 2012s would go for at auction. But given these numbers, it seems I *might* be able to pull this off. My CA told me that trade values are given based on how much these cars are selling for at auction. Depending on how much more a 2012 is worth, I would prefer to do trade as I wouldn't have to pay sales tax again. It also seems that it would be less of a hassle on my end.
