Question UK - opinion on the value of some SLK bits

As was always my plan I'm shortly looking to sell on my 1997 SLK and I'm looking to generate the most income possible.

If I could sell the following items for the following prices it's probably the route I will go down - can I have some opinions on these prices?

16" five spoke R171 alloy wheels (staggered) in fabulous condition with four matching as-new nexen nblue eco tyres (205/55/16 + 225/50/16). I would be looking for £300.

Original standard 16" R170 alloy wheels (staggered) just refurbished to a good standard. Centre caps but no tyres. I would be looking for £180.

Pre-facelift book pack / owner manuals dated 31st January 1996. I would be looking for £50 (no service history book).

Mercedes child booster seat with transponders to turn passenger airbag off. I would be looking £80.

Pre-facelift boot lock (minus the spring on the end where it joins the bar leading to the latch). I would be looking for £45.

Gear selector lever/mechanism. I would be looking for £30.

All prices would be + postage if applicable.

Would you sell the transponder separately?

cliveski,

if you are prepared to manoeuvre on price, then they will sell. the usual buyers market approach applies. I've noticed whenever I buy anything, it's made of unobtanium and priced accordingly. When I come to sell, it's made of commonasmuckium and no-one wants it.

They aren't ludicrously over-priced, but remember, everyone wants a bargain as well.

Thanks for the feedback... this post got moved from general discussion... I was really just after opinions on my asking prices ahead of deciding what to do... that said the wheels I had refurbished and the gear selector are two of the things I can sell without worry so if your interested perhaps send me a message...

I can add some pictures of the wheels I had refurbished - on reflection I would be looking for just £150 for them as the refurbishment they had was relatively 'cheap' - they look great and will last but for a perfectionist like me I can find imperfections on close inspection.

I can add pictures of the wheels that are on my car too but would need to find a cheaper replacement before selling them on (unless someone can part-exchange).

general discussion is for slk discussion but not model specific. You have a r170 so that is model specific so to parts for sale or 170 general discussion it went

second hand prices can be such a joke... esp with dealers and stuff on ebay.. I am thinking of taking my wood trim out, selling my 230 and saving up for a 320... so am after some carbon trim (which stupidly I didn't keep when I fitted my oem wood laminate). interior parts prices are so silly... some out bits of trim and some dealer wants a fair chunk of cash.

Just found my original spring for the boot lock under the car so I now have a complete boot lock to sell on for £60.

Have your wheels sold?

Hi Clive. Have you sold either of these sets yet? I am in the market and am either going to keep the car stock or upgrade like you. I have a tight budget as there is plenty for me to address. Also, can you ship if required as I am down in Devon.
Kind regards
J
