Maybe I should add that I got my a$$ handed to me on the trade in of my X1. They valued it at 35k - the car is 2 years and 3 months old with 23,000k (plus 18 inch staggered Alloys, Leather, Bi-Xenon, X-line and Sunroof) on it. I bought it for 68k.

So they are going to make a killing out of giving it a wash (and repair scratched rims), parking it on the lot and putting a $48k sticker on it.

I think that is a factor as well.
