Trying to sell the 2yr 9 month 20k miles Merc C Class 350 CDI AMG Sport Blue Efficiency 7 Speed Auto, Sat Nav Command System etc etc. Book price secondhand £21k, dealer offered us £16k. Secondhand cars are worth beans. Very trying. At least the Mk6 GTI had a queue of interested buyers. I even got a nice fat deposit!
