I have walked out a few times over the years, but usually have had my OTD price met as I try to be fair with the dealership as well as myself.
so do you go by nada for trade value ?? And how do it come up with your it’d price ??

Are you looking at Lariats with tow mirrors?
I thought Lariats with the Sport pkg, had painted mirror caps and Lariats with the chrome pkg. had chrome mirror caps, unless equipped with tow mirrors,

I know the 2019 Lariat with either Sport or Special Edition package have painted caps.

I normally check KBB, NADA, Edmunds, Black book for trade in values. My OTD price I come up with includes all dealer fees such as Doc Fee and any state taxes etc. (Idaho 6%). I don't go by MSRP but check similar equipped vehicles on different dealer and online sites such as Cars.com what they are listed for including any rebates by Ford and then go from there in determining what I'm willing to pay. Not an exact science, but it has worked for me over the years.

Tow mirrors with the Lariat chrome package will come with chrome mirror caps.

The tow mirrors on my 2013 XLT chrome package are the same.
