The dealer I went with gave me $1000 more for my trade and $405 off MSRP on the ST3, so it was really like getting $1405 off list if you use the other dealers' appraised value for my trade.

btw, only my dealer and one other would guarantee in writing that they would give me their appraised value for my trade for 3 months/5000 miles to accommodate me ordering the ST.
