A friend of mine is selling his 2001 C320 4 door with C2 option, chrome wheels, in great shape with 21k miles. Here is my question. I called my local dealer and they said a NEW 2003 C320 with C2 option is being offered at $36,660 and 3.9% financing for 36 months. So they are selling MBs below invoice! So forget KBB and want ads, they are not realistic. What do you think his car is worth? 28k? 30k?

Are you talking about $3.5K off MSRP for a new C320? If so, we got that deal on an '02 in May '02 so that has been an obtainable deal on a new C320 for a while. Edmunds has used '01 C's at less than $28K from a private party--more like $25-26K: buying used is said to be a great bargain now because the used car market is saturated with fairly new models, just off 2-and 3-year leases. It may be too that if you don't need 4 doors, you can get the 320 in the coupe for about the same price as a used 4-door.

actually edmunds has the C320 with C2 at $35K

Since now you can have the C320 with manual transmission the price starts lower( -1500), also teleaid is extra, which is nother $700 or so lower. What I am saying is your friends car has more options in it, compared to what the dealer most likely quoting you. So I don't think it is not under invoice. Anyhow, unless your friend wants to let it go for $26 or so, I would just get the newer one, with the color and options you really want for a couple of grand more. I bet you could really get a nice deal now...or give your friend 10% over whatever the dealer offers him on a trade-in, to cover for the tax% cut he would get upon trading (6% in our case, and give him 4% for a soda [:D] )
