Huw hit it on the head saying the dealer _will_ have an obligation to 
warranty the car for a certain period per State Law.  That involves the 
expense of inspecting it.  Then there's the billing expense.  I would 
not expect a dealer to do something for nothing; that's how you go out 
of business PDQ.

Andrew's comment about pond scum seems to imply that a dealer who takes 
in a trade and looks to make a profit is doing something illegal,  Jeez, 
give it a rest.  With 6 years behind a desk selling Audi, I've seen 
plenty of pond scum. . . .  I think you might worry more about the 
private seller as he seems to be working both sides of the fence because 
if the dealer is doing his/her job right, their trade number is less 
than what you're offering.
