Trading in my 2011 M3... fair offer?

EDIT: I think I'll try to sell privately. I have plenty of time. Thanks for the info.

If you are happy with it then it is a fair deal. Enjoy the new M4!

Fair offer? Forget the other side of the sale (M4 price)... since I am getting a discount on it whether or not I trade in my car and it seems MSRP is the going rate.
Thats the price of the car in the market. I expect the dealer will sell it for 45k ~ 46k

You think the dealer is only going to make $3K? They will most likey ask mid $50K and settle on low $50K.

Try to sell it privately.

I know I can get more privately... but the question is, how much more?

The problem is it may take you long time to sell it privately. How patient are you with dealing with buyers is all up to you.

I stated it above. You can get low 50s, (high 40s for a quick sale) depending on condition and options. Needing new tires is going to ding the price though.

I never heard of a deal whereby the buyer gives up ownership of his car while he waits for the new one to arrive. Kind of interesting.
So, how long do you have to wait for your new car to arrive? Are you leaving your car on consignment with the dealer?

Its a trade in. They gave me the option of trading it in when my new car comes (3 months?) or trading now. Obviously, I get more if I give it up now. I guess I'm risking my car if the dealership goes bankrupt between now and when my new car comes in. Honestly, I wasn't even thinking about that.

If you trade it in, you'll also save about $3,000 in taxes so take that into consideration (pretty much add it to the trade-in price).

Precisely the situation with my father and his purchase of a new Bentley. Will have to give up his current one and wait 3 months until the new one comes in. Kind of a 'take it or leave it' kind of situation I guess.
