Someone else drove home in 23k mile 2002/52 Mercedes SL500 with all the kit including satnav for £47,500.

More relatively cheap cars included a 10k mile 2004/54 BMW E60 525iSE manual, sold for £21,750, a 75k mile 02 reg Mercedes S320CDI with satnav for £22,600, a 57k mile 02 reg BMW 318i 2.0 litre for £9,900, a 46k mile 02 reg 318i 2.0Ti Compact for £9,300, and a 56k mile Y reg Jaguar 4.0 Sovereign for £10,600.
