Actually 18k miles is a lot for a demo. Surely it must have been used as a "pool" car. Try to sell them a similar car in part ex and you will find a complete change of tune. So don't pay more than than market value for a car of similar age and mileage, or else you might as well buy a new car with a discount thrown in. Any car of that age can be shined up to look in showroom condition. Johannes
