Any dealers on here that can tell me what I can get for a 2004 silver V that is in excellent condition(garaged all year), 42k miles, had the rear changed (under warranty) and the parade klunk repaired. Other than that, 100% stock. I did a Kelley Blue Book and it came up 32K...That can't be correct, can it ??

I want to get a 2007 CTS-V and flip this car before hand...

Just curious, why would you flip an '04 for and '07. I could see if there were major differences, but why would you be willing to take such a huge hit on what is essentially the same car?

makes no sense to me either...keep the 04 and dump it on the 09.

$32k...good luck! If you have money to burn, then go ahead. I fully agree with the other replies! Why sell it for another? But my buddy does the same thing and never cares every year! Twice a year actually! :thepan: The market is dead and many are selling theirs for cash flow reasons etc. which hurts the market even more, as you probably know.

You will be LUCKY to get $26,000 on trade in. I've tried to unload mine a few times in the past couple weeks and I got offered anywhere from $24,000-$26,000 on my 04 w/ 40,000 miles.

KBB, should be pretty damn close. You just have to keep in mind the difference between the price if sold to an individual or traded in. If you're thinking of trading it in to a dealer and getting another that's going to be noticeably lower than selling it outright.

Thanks for the reply's. That is what I thought. 26k if I am lucky, dealer maybe even less. KBB said 32k for an individual sale (consumer to consumer) which sounded real high to me.

Reason I ask is because the car is coming off a lease (company carried at no expense to me). I have a choice to buy the car outright for 26.5k and resell it or just flip it for another identical car (2007) at no cost to me. Either way the car is gone in March, 2007.

Someone I know has mentioned on more than one occasion he would like to buy the 2004 car when it comes off lease, but I did not know what to ask. If I can make a buck, why not. If it's too close to the buy out, it is not worth it to me. I may tell him 29k, and if he comes up with a deposit, I will go ahead and buy it / flip it. Take the 3k and put it towards a super charger on the 07..

Again, thanks for getting this thread back on track.

Don't know if you can do it, but if you get an 07 on a lease try to keep it to like 24 months. That way when the new V get's out and you decide you want one you should be pretty close to trade up at that point. :)
