That's you.I look to buy a car outright for a few hundred pounds and run it indefinitely - not throw hundreds of pounds down the drain every month and have nothing to show for it .
Actually the leasing market sometimes doesn't seem to always use the obvious rules.The lower the monthly the higher the initial deposit - you can’t beat the maths.
Which is about what you’d pay (ie lose) on a PCP, if not less
Have you tried putting the reg into the TFL ULEZ checker to confirm? I thought the E class only became EU6 in 2015 onwards.
Not the V6 Diesel version, In my opinion the E220d is not in the same league as the E350d, you're looking at £26,000 for an E350d estate AMG line.Would be a lot of car for someone at £10k but at the end of the day you can get the new shape E class estate W213 2017 on models from £18k at a main dealer currently so seems unlikely anyone would pay £15k for the previous model and a 4 year older car.
They almost certainly wouldn’t retail a 7 year old car, they would pass it in in the trade. If the valuation was quick then they will be taking a risk and so offered lower. If the valuation took a while then it will be based upon offers from the trade.Just been to a Mercedes dealer in my 2013 Facelift E350 Bluetec Estate 52,000 showroom condition and full service history to enquire about part exchanging it against a newer car.
Their valuation £10,500.
I walked away thinking they'd have it for sale for £14,995 all day long.
I remember now why I don't like car dealerships and why I preferred to lease a new car.
Would you mind me asking how much you paid for it, where you bought it from (main dealer, independent dealer, private), how old it was when you bought it, how many miles it had covered when you bought it, and how many miles you’ve covered?
How is a low miles 2013 Mercedes approaching the end of its economic life?Bearing in mind the cost it will take to ready the car for sale, to fund a warranty and the VAT on any profit, with unknown demand for a 7 year old diesel, which is approaching the end of its economic life, what you do think would be an appropriate P/X value?
