Keep it or trade again?

I currently have a 2014 E250 CDI AMG Sport estate. I got it in 2017 on PCP which expires in 6 months. GFV is £6200. The car is fully loaded, has done 55K miles and is absolutely immaculate (see post on 2 hours polishing with Carnuba!). My only gripe with the car is the noise on motorways (19 inch Pirelli Sports fitted), I love everything else but I think I want the air suspension and I lust after the digital dash. From what I can see online, I could get around £10.5K on a private sale.

If I hang on and trade up on a PCP, I reckon I'll be lucky to get £2K towards the next one but if I decide to buy it once the PCP expires, I probably wont get as good a deal from a dealer for the next one.

Grateful for advice on best way forward; keep it and run it?, trade up on the PCP? or buy it and P/X with a new dealer.

Thanks

Keeping it. Will change tyres to Goodyears when they are needed. Finally bit the bullet and had the alloys refurbed this week too.
Always nice to have the alloys immaculate 👍


If I may ask, where did you have it done, how much, what colour did you go for, and how is the quality really close up?


Another vote for Eagle F1s here as well.

Done by Custom alloys | Classic Coatings Ltd in Grantham. I asked that the wheels looked exactly as per original and they do. Cost me £80 a wheel plus VAT.

You can zoom in and have a look. I'm really pleased.

what a lovely looking car and just over 6k, a good deal I would think, especially as you have had the car from new and know everything about it.
