Wife hates the car and refuses to drive it. Blames me for ordering a car so expensive that she doesn't like.

Happy wife = happy life. Not worth keeping it for me lol.

It's essentially too small for her. She complains about vision lines.

Vision lines? how bout a periscope? How bout sonar? There's plenty of other ways to navigate! But seriously, there are some blind spot issues on the X1 ... i find myself double checking before changed lanes, but I know my sunglasses don't help... but is that enough to hate the car, force you to sell it, and basically make you eat the depreciation? That's gonna be a few thousand dollars no matter how you slice it, unless you get a really desperate buyer..., so what does she prefer instead? What else is in that class with a deal breaking, superior line of vision? For what it is, basically a lifted hatchback, i think the X1 is class-leading in all the other departments (like quality, ride, acceleration, handling, etc) and holds its own fine in the vision line department. (Although i may be off here... i haven't tested out the equivalent sized Hyundai or Mazda, just the same class A3, A4, 328i wagon). Or does she really want something completely out of class... maybe a Hummer or an F150? You sure vision lines is the issue?

Wow...who's car was it? Yours, or hers? I'm not following. I hope she's not insisting that you sell YOUR car because she doesn't like it on the rare occasion that she has to drive it. I'm also hoping that you didn't buy HER the X1 without her ever test-driving it and getting her OK.

Ex-One, there is a "Cars - Private Party" section for posting BMWs for sale. Looks to be just the one section for any BMW models:

Have you tried CarMax (if there is one near to you)? They are generally very fair and make reasonable offers. I have sold a couple of BMWs via them with very good results.
