As easy as it would be, I don't even want to think about trade in as I know it would be less then what I have left on my loan.
No.

Unless it had under 70k miles and was a perfect 1 owner garage queen beauty. We are talking about a 13 year old vehicle here, quickly going on 14 years old. They aren't appreciating with age like say the E39 M5 either.

Worst thing that can happen is be firm on your price and you'll end up sitting on it for a while waiting for the right buyer, or maybe find someone who wants your exact vehicle and would get close to your price.

Another reason why I recommended to not take out a car note on a 13 year old X5 because when the inevitable "I dumped a bunch of money in and can't fathom another big repair" happens, now you're over your head and can't take the negative equity on trade.
