Opinions Please

I have found a 2007 E320 with 36,000. Black with Black leather. Navigation, Package 1, Premium wheels, Warranty to 100,000 or 6 years from now. They want $33,000.
Is this about right?
What should I ask for my 1998 E300?
Xenon, Leather comfort seats, Rebuilt turbo,new front end, new rear, suspension, brakes and rotors, new shocks. Double 5 spoke rims(AMG copy), new radiator, water pump, EGR, MAF, all filters, fresh Amsoil. All dark glass, gray outside, Gray/Black interior, 10 CD changer in trunk. New floor mats(MB). New glow plugs, new fuel lines. WOW, I'd better keep this and sell my 1987 300DT(sedan). Nothing else to go wrong.

Offer 'em $25K, then walk if they don't take it.....

What are the stats on your 98 E300TD? They vary from $5K to $9,500 or thereabouts. Expect $7K tops, if it's in very good condition with around 100K to 125K miles.

Who are "they"? A dealer offering CPO - sounds like it with that warranty? If so, $33K is in the ballpark, but you could probably talk them down $3-5K. Still, a MB dealer CPO warranty is way better than a 3rd party warranty...for that kind of money you can easily get the same car CPO.

I'd keep the 98 and sell the 87. You've already repaired all...err...most...of the w210 problems they talk about on this board. The 87 will start having age related issues soon.

Mein Gott in Himmel! I've never paid over $1600 to purchase any automobile. Your mileage may vary. That is all.

They are Car Max in Kearney Mesa. Warranty is a third party after the 50K mileage limit. It was in Portland ,Oregon. I am getting a free look without transport fee.
My 98 has new tires and most everything else replaced. Paint good, more than normal wear and tear on rear bumper and left door. It has been the wife's driver to everywhere...shopping malls and work so it has door dings.
Probably a $5000 trade in. Looks like I need to drive it until it stops.
Thanks for the opinions!

1987- 250,000 + ODO stopped last year.
Engine rebuilt 3 years ago, lots of receipts
M/B put in complete turbo and exhaust
Original Paint, no rust, no body damage
Original interior, Sunroof is slow, A/C works
Ruins like a rocket, new brakes and rotors
Needs steering gear, blower fan runs all the time for heater
All lights work, tinted windows need to be redone
Make offer so I can buy the E320 Bluetec
