RE: Please help me price my car to sell...
Best bet is to advertise in the local "high-ciculation" paper. I don't remember the SD paper -- is it the Union Tribune?
Put a classy 4 line ad (don't try and fit it in 2 or 3)
Explain your care and the records you have.
Prices are very depressed these days -- very. Cars ( including MBZ) are selling for just above trade in KBB. Anything much above that is a waste of your time. Don't even think about "Private Party Values" way too high.
I bought a very, very clean 2000 E320 for $18,500. The C Class has suffered from poorer resale values than E's.
I recommend the Edmunds Forum for "Real World Values" It is hosted by some very sharp dealers who have been dead on for me three times.
Here's my opinion: Advertise it for $12,500 and take the first serious money for anything over $11,500 and wave goodbye.
This assumes all recent service, records in hand, tires at 75% or better an interior that looks like it's been hovered in and paint that looks garaged and pampered. It sounds like you have that kind of car...
I wish they were worth more too. The good news is your replacement should be a hell of a value too.
Of course you can just keep the car.....
