Hi Mags

A quick look at shows dealers are asking around £29k for a 2004 '54 530DSE auto with leather. Cars with satnav go for around £1k more, but they all have the professional version (full colour mapping etc).

Your father's has a high spec, but I'm not sure that this will be reflected in the residuals. For example, comfort seats are expensive new, but probably add little to the second hand value for many people. Have you tried calling any dealers to geta rough idea what they'd offer? This might be a good starting point for pitching the price. There are usually a few dealers advertising in the sunday papers for cars.

You could also take a look at Glass's online for a valuation (there is a charge, but if you link to to via you get 3 free valuations grin.gif)
