Value of Vehicle:

At time of purchase: $8,000.00 US = $ 11,000.00 Cad.

Owners value now: $8,000.00 US = $ 11,000.00 Cad.

2005 BMW MSRP Value: $ 8,800.00 US = $ 12,000.00 Cad.

I suggest we price the vehicle at $ 12,000.00 x 120 CIF%


Cost $12,000.00
Insurance $ 600.00
Freight $ 1,000.00
Total $13,600.00 X 120% = $16,300.00 needed as a guarantee.
