    I was thinking of trading it in my 2012 P2 C to 2015 p3 C

    Anyone thinking to do the same?

    Yeah, I'm thinking about giving my 2012 P2 to my son for Christmas just to give me an excuse to get another 2 for me.

    How many miles on your 2012? And what would be the total for the trade (with all fees, taxes, etc.)?

    24000 miles right now on the car and I got it in 2013. will had it for 2 years in a few months. Trade in value about $12500-13000 ....

    Really want the LED headlight but not sure about the new orange yet.

    Seems like it would be a waste of money.

    My Dealer contacted me today wanting to buy my car, saying I have equity in my 2012 and if I wanted to buy a new car? Nice idea, but I really like my C and have already started to mod it. So I think I will keep it.:)

    If the dealer offered retail for the trade in and the True Car price for the new one, then yes. Otherwise, no.

    The ten thousand dollar hit between your trade in and the cost of a new C would make those 24,000 miles *very* expensive.

    "nope" for me. My 2012 C2 does what I need it to do.

    I'll keep my 2012, but, will try to convince the girlfriend to get rid of her 2010 SUV in favor of a new C. I don't expect to be successful.

    doesn't hurt to have one car that can handle a lot of luggage?

    Yes. Thus, she should upgrade her SUV to just a V!
