Kelley Blue Book - New Car Prices and Used Car Blue Book Values - Official Kelley Blue Book Site

NADA - New Car Prices, Used Car Values, New Car Reviews and Car Buying at NADA Guides

Edmunds - New Car Prices, Used Car Pricing, Car Reviews by Edmunds Car Buying Guide

The above three are just guides, they don't buy or sell cars. But, you can get an idea of what your car is worth as a "private party".

Also, check out similiar cars to yours, in the real world, at Cars.com - www.cars.com
and Autotrader = Used Cars, New Cars, Buy a Car, Sell a Car, Car Dealers - AutoTrader.com

Check out Ebay and Hemmings. You have a desirable car, the last of that series. The miles and condition of the car are important. Your miles are a little high. And, banks don't like to finance 9 year old cars. So, keep that in mind when pricing. My rough guess?? Between $12 to $16K.

Here's one like yours on Ebay with 71K miles, starting price $15K, no bids! eBay Motors: Mercedes-Benz : S-Class (item 160250388935 end time Jun-19-08 09:24:09 PDT)

And, here's one with 94K miles - "Buy it now" at $11,500!! eBay Motors: Mercedes-Benz : S-Class (item 270246143835 end time Jun-19-08 16:43:41 PDT)

Good luck!

Perhaps he went into shock when he saw the price of $11,000 - or $15,000 without any bids. What did he expect the answer to be?? $50,000 ??? A "Thank You"
certainly would have been in order, for all the work you did on supplying the information
