Sorry, but I'm of no help pricing the heaviest Miata on the planet. Manheim does not include a PRHT option.
Out of what is listed, there is only 1 that had miles that low, it was reported as above average condition, red, and automatic, and it brought $14,600. The next 2 were red, 26k, stick and a grey, 28k, stick, which went for $13,900 and $12,300, respectively.

Hey, its not heavy, its big-boned.
Thanks Q. Sounds like $14 wouldn't be totally unreasonable.

Well, the Buick dealer was only willing to offer $15.5 for the CX-9; I showed them the CarMax appraisal and they told me to RUN down there and sell it to them ASAP - which I did! They couldn't believe CarMax offered so much for it; they said their absolute max would be no more than $16. Very interesting to see the two so far apart...

Yes I did. I was very comfortable working with the sales staff and with the lease numbers. Though they may not have offered us as much on the trade-in, they were very understanding with our request to leave and sell it to CarMax first (it was actually the sales manager who suggested we leave to sell it after I showed him CM's offer). The only information they shared was that recent auction sales supported their offer (which is exactly what CM told me too); neither dealer shared the actual auctions with me. Guess they were looking at different auctions!

2005 Touareg V8 in Columbus, Ohio
Gray Exterior/Tan Leather Interior
Condition: Clean, non-smoker
Recent accident with $10k repairs (body/paint). Not totaled but have not checked the car-smack report yet. Owner is very pleased with the quality of repairs but looking to trade for something new. She is second owner, has been diligent with VW dealer maintenance, and expenses have caused her to reconsider keeping an aging VW. Currently the car looks/drives like a magic carpet ride with no issues. She's asking for trade in value but hasn't decided on a new car yet. Thanks all.
