What I can get for 13' 535i m sport

Wanted to get some of you guys opinion on what I should expect to get from a dealer. I'm going to be trading in my 13' 535i m sport. It has right at 70k miles. Alpine white with oyster leather and hexagon aluminum trim. Car is in great condition. No scratches or dents or anything like that. From what I've seen on autotrader, similar mileage, same model and year are going for 23900. I've spoken to only one dealer and they offered not a dollar over 18k. I told them kiss my ass.

Here is the thing about the dealer; they are always going to give like 70% of what your car is worth because that 30% is where they make money. The only I would trade in my car is if it was paid off because then it allows for a tax break when I purchase a new car. I'm t considering selling my 13' 535xi M-Sport as well and I got offered $21k when I know I get $29k for it private (https://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/c...239162088.html). I'd recommend selling your car private.

In most states you get the tax break regardless of if it's paid off or not. So if the dealer would be offering me $18K I'd have to sell for $20K or more for it to be worth it where I'm located.

$18K is what I'm showing as auction value for that car which is exactly why the dealer is offering it. In a worst case situation where he can't sell it that's around what he'd make sending it there. Assuming he decides to sell it for $23-24 on his own lot he'd likely have to recondition, at minimum oil change/detail but maybe tires/brakes which adds to his cost but I can't speak for this specific car. Assuming the dealer is decent anyway who knows.
