Advice on selling my 2005 X5, Imola Red

Hi guys,

I have a 2005 X5, 3.0i, Imola Red, 60K miles, in pristine condition. It has the cold weather package and Dakota Black leather interior. I'm the second owner, and it is BMW CPO warranty until 1/2011.

As much as it pains me, I've decided to sell her and go back to a full size SUV. I gave my Yukon to my daughter (I barely drove the X5 except on weekends), and now I find myself missing having a big, honkin' full size sport utility.

Can y'all advise me on two things:

1. What do you think she's worth? (since it's Imola Red, those are like a needle in a haystack - I've owned this one two years and I've never seen another Imola Red one). I'm thinking $21 to $23K?

2. Where do I advertise? Is ebay motors better, or Craigslist?

3. It's still financed with BMW Financial Services. Should I pay off the loan before I sell? I could probably scrape up the money somehow. How hard is it to sell a car when it's financed?

Thanks for any advice you can provide.....
