Most dealers I have dealt with use the NADA book value for the car. It seems to be very accurate because the listing can be narrowed down by every spec on the car so you get credit for sport packages etc. I went from a Jetta to a 323ci and I fu#*ing love it! Good choice, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
