Of course you can squeeze $4K out of them, provided that you have not fixed the price on the M/B. These are crafty folk, and, if they sense that the trade-in value is the most important thing for you, you'll get what you want. Don't expect much of anything off the asking price of the M/B if the $4K is more than wholesale, however.

They have to make money on both ends of the deal.........when they purchase yours (at wholesale) and when they sell theirs (at or close to retail).

That's the best advice, financially. But, you must put up with the the BS of selling a vehicle privately.

Of course, there is always e-bay, but that carries its own difficulties of sale.
