I will be selling my lovely '94 SL280 soon, only 66k miles. I have had it for 5 years but now need something with proper back seats I just wanting to ask, how much should I be expecting to get for it? Originally I was going to buy a brand new Merc at the dealership. I was offered £11500 part exchange one week, but when I came back next week to hammer out a deal, they said "oops we make a mistake only worth £9500 as its too old for us to sell". I said this was unnacceptable, and was told they would ring me back. They never did. So I took my business to carfile, and the Nottingham dealership gave me 6.25% discount on my new Merc - quite impressive for a Merc, and I don't like haggling anyway. Anyway I now have to sell it privately, something I have never done, but I was so annoyed with the way I was treated at the Gatwick dealership, I am determined that no dealer is going to be allowed to make an easy buck on my car! Just one more question, how does one accept payment, obviously bankers draft springs to mind, but these can be faked with a good modern printer, and I am not sure I am prepared to handle a large amount of cash!
