Unfortunately, not everyone will agree with your last statement- and therefore you might actually be decreasing your potential buyer base. Not to say that your mods didn't cost money, but you may not get what you want if you don't end up with as many lookers.

I am not sure about the value with the mod's. You can check out the NADA website and the prices on autotrader then add in a percentage of the cost of the modifications. I am sure you know already, but it is tough to get back what you put into a vehicle in terms of add-on's.
Good luck with your sale.

Mike

Many people pull off there mods and sell them separately. It ensures that they get paid for them. Otherwise, some feel that a modded vehicle is worth less than on OEM... I can only compare it to restored vintage vehicles, where much pain is taken to replace with the original parts instead of updating.

The mods will detract from the value of the car. Thats why dealers want stock vehicles. You also make no mention of the model, 500, 320 ?? In any case your estimate of what you want to get is way off base, much too high.

No wonder I never see modified vehicles on dealer websites/car lots.

I think he has an '02 ML500 with 55,000 miles.
