By the way;what kind of bids have you had? Still,best of luck.

I have bought and sold modded cars also. I understand what you are saying. I would like to get 1/3 of my mod money back which is reasonable if the right buyer comes along. It is possible. I just recently sold my modded truck for twice what the market value of the vehicle was...to a buyer from Canada who had to have my specific truck.

Problem is its a first year SL55. There are a bunch on the market and times are a little tough. I was looking at maybe trading my perfect condition 2005 SL55. Going to be lucky to get $ 25K for it in trade. Private Party maybe a little more. Your looking at around $ 25K if you can find a buyer.

Illl take 45k... This is not a regular sl55 please read the description.. This car is perfect in every way, I've got $ 25k in mods, plus I have a Csc warranty ... The car runs better than cars with half the mileage any day.

The dealer can tell you the trade in price or how much they want to pay for your car.
Take their price, add a few thousands, that will be a marketable price.

^^^ I'm not going off a trade in price. I am going off the market value and condition then adding maybe $0.30 on the dollar for mod investment. I will let the car go for $45K which is a bargain for what the buyer gets...again, read the description...you cannot apply a simple trade in value to this car...it's not a stock vehicle .... it was painstakingly modded and is perfect inside/out plus warranty...the car is flawless, and very well cared for.
