Part Exchanging Car Before MFK

One of my tasks for the new year was to change the car. My current car is 8 years old with 100,000km. Despite knowing that the value offered would be significantly lower, I was planning to part exchange the car against a newer car at a dealership. HOWEVER... I have just received an invitation to MFK the car in three months time.

Is there anything stopping me part exchanging the car at a dealership prior to taking the car to MFK? Or is it simply that the dealership would offer me much less for a car without a recent MFK?

Any guidance much appreciated!

Any buyer (dealer especially) would want to see MFK before parting with their cash

The dealer won't care.

Re: Part Exchanging Car Before MFK

really depends on the price of the car you intend to buy

if you're looking at a brand new merc then the dealer won't give a toss, If you're looking at a 4k 2nd hand crap box off a small yard then they are going to care - a lot.

stick the car on facebook market place and tutti.ch for free and you'll be inundated with offers, and you'll get a lot more then any forecourt dealer will give you
