Silver Arrow value
Iím moving next fall and donít think Iíll have room for both our cars and the Silver Arrow. I know this question could have a large range of answers and hope not to start a donnybrook...however...what is the value of a 2002 SL 500 Silver Arrow, with 91,000 miles? I imported to Canada from US in 2007 and since then she spends all winter in an underground garage. If rain is in the forecast, she stays in my garage. I baby her, but she does get driven as you can see by the mileage. Iíve taken her to Florida (from Toronto) 3 or 4 times in the last 5 years and she runs great. I replaced the front hydraulics 15 months ago. The only known issue is the cracking of the wood trim pieces around the center console. Otherwise, great condition mechanically and physically.
The market for these cars is much stronger in the US I suspect, given many (like me) view these as 3-season cars up here, whereas they can be 4-season cars in much of the US. The car is now titled in Ontario and I have no idea what would be involved in importing back into the US.
I might trade with my Audi for something else, or might try to sell privately. Iím curious a) what the group thinks is the value is, b) if anyone knows what is involved in re-importing back to the US and c) is anyone in the group here interested in buying her?
Thanks guys, as always Iím grateful for any and all input.
