I'm looking at getting a car, 2007 or newer. Looks and style wise I prefer the BMW, but I wondered if anyone had views on which is actually the best car for my money(£13,000). We do have 2 children (5+7) but I really don't like big cars, the merc is quite small inside, the BMW seems a good size, but i'm not too sure about the other 2. I have owned a Golf and BMW compact in the past so are more familiar with these.
Have had our car valued by a couple of dealerships and they are quoting £4000, so we have it listed to sell privately to hopefully make a little above that as obviously it's sale value is quite a bit higher.
So we have our car and cash, but realisticly how much do you think we should be able to negotiate off of a 2 year old car? We would prefer to buy from a main dealership.
Help/thoughts appreciated :)
