Part Exchange Hell!

Is it just me, or is there no sense in dealers exchange offers?

Went to look at an ex-demo CLK500 today at a Merc dealer in London - was really impressed with the car, thought to myself 'if we can do a deal, I'll have this one'. Dealer went over my car, went to speak to his manager, came back with a grand total of ------ £7250 :eek: :eek: This for a 2000 W reg C280 Sport, 60000 miles, fMBsh, etc, etc, etc

A BMW dealer offered me around £12.5k a short time ago, and my local dealer offered me £11k a few weeks back - is my car really losing £5k per month?

Thinking about putting mine up for sale privately in Autotrader - anyone suggest what sort of price to put it up for?

I cannot understand this. The dealer is obviously taking the pi55.

I changed from my C200 after 12 months to the C230K, and got most of what I paid for the C200 back (all purchases from same independant dealer).

Parkers guide price for your car is £15970 (A1) and personally that is what I would expect to pay for your car from a dealer.
