You try and sell the old one.
Ain't that the truth!

I took both the cars we replaced this month to Carmax before I tried the dealer. In both cases, the dealer was *higher* than Carmax. I was somewhat surprised.

Example: My 2007 550i, fully loaded, 92K miles, in very good shape. Carmax $11K, dealer $14K. Dealer wins.

I had -zero- desire to sell it myself, so these were my only options, based on how lazy I am.
