I think the following won't be too far from the mark:

Part Exchange: 14500 - 15000

Private sale: 15500 - 16500

Sorry to Hi-Jack the thread but can I ask ss134, what have you based your part exchange values on?

I have a Oct 09 325i M-Sport E90 and at the moment through webuyanycar, it is showing as worth 12k. I do realise that this site will always undervalue but even say they are undervaluing it by 1k is the original posters 320d worth 1.5k to 2k more that my 325i?

My extras are
Leather Seats
Heated Seats
Business Sound
USB Connection
Tinted rear windows
Split/Fold rear seats

Will BMW dealers offer you more as a trade in that say Audi? I'm contemplating going up to a 5 series or Audi A6 so want to know as much as I can before I make a decision.

Webuyanycar.com do give massively low valuations, generally amplified as the car becomes more expensive. Then they try to knock you down more

I had better luck with webuyyourwheels.com although only by about 1k or so (on a 3.0 Grand Cherokee).

Parkers still gives the best ballpark figure IMO.

But no more of this depreciation lark. I'm signed up to the NHS lease scheme now for a cracking deal on my E91

I think Private sale is about 15k. (advertise for 15.5).

Trade in will depend on which dealer (i.e BMW or other), and what you are buying. It is all about cost to change.

I would see a valuation from WBAC to be nothing more than a rock bottom indication of trade in (and as others have said they will try and chip more off when you get there).

Dont forget its obsolete now, so expect an increasing price drop as the new 3er appears on the used markets over the next year or two. Best get shot asap.

A few years ago i was offered 21000 for my year old fully specced E90 M Sport 335i by webuyanycar - i ended up getting 27000 from a BMW dealer straight sale.

I based my part exchange value on PARKERS USED CAR VALUATION - their prices have always been spot on when i have been selling cars to dealers and also by looking at similar cars for sale from BMW AUC and deducting a dealer mark up %.

The OPs 320d is definately worth a decent premium over your 325i assuming both cars are in similar condition with average miles. Parkers has the price difference at around 2000 in favour of the 320d - thats the price youve paid for having a sweet petrol engine instead of a dirty derv

I am about to experience the same thing later this year when i sell my car.

Different dealers will give different prices so ring around to get the best price possible.
