You aren't taking regard of the fact that the gap between trade and retail may have widened, the motor trade are very good at regulating this.

Also a car trade at 21k will retail for more than 23k, they will want to be making at least 15% on that and also need to factor in their refurb costs. Often these are fictional and just add to the negotiating space or bottom line if they find a sucker. I would expect a car trading at 21k to be priced up near to 25k.
