If you had to sell your diesel Mercedes right now, how much would you ask?

Lets just say you were in need of money and you had to sale your diesel Mercedes to have some cash, how much would you ask?
Please list the year and model and features as if it were a real ad. Pictures would be a real plus also. Add some humor also if you wish.
Please keep it real, and no super high prices, although you can list it for what you have in it.

Ot of curiosity, why? To me it seems like you are fishing for ads, but I can't figure out why.

The fact is, the only people interested in these venerable machines are on this forum. Their worth, is minus what it costs to keep them running.

Never

I'd never sell my TD. I'm always going to need a reliable car I like. Between my wife's SD my TD and the Jaguar, I'll likely never buy another
car. I'm a bit old, so I can see all my cars lasting until I croak. I guess
I wouldn't mind selling the XJS but as nice as it is, who'd want a 12 cyl.
car in these days of electric vehicles.

I don't sell my cars anymore. I just give 'em away when I'm done with them.
