Insist on seeing insurance docs and make it clear you will only accept cash - and go with them on test drives!

With the dealers offering up to 12% discount on a new e90 335i its a lot of cash to throw away by trading in
Well the dealer has our old car up for 1900 more than he gave us. He has a got to put a new set of tyres on it and provide a new warranty. I couldn't have got that extra for it if I sold privately even if I wanted to. He gave me higher than the book trade in value and I had no aggro and wasn't without a car. You only have to get stung once selling a car privately and it doesn't have be a 20k car either.
