Negotiating at a Dealer: Trade-In vs. Retail Values
Looking at trading a Victory Kingpin Tour for a Victory Vision Tour Premium. Comparing trade-in values, I'd have to come up with $2500 with trade. Comparing retail values, it moves up to a $3000 difference. If I have to pay Retail value - Trade-in value, it's $6250 and a deal breaker for me.
Any experience out there on trading at dealerships? The "art" of negotiating? What value does $1000 in accessories add?
My only experience is buying new with no trade.
Thanks! All negotiating secrets/experience welcome.
