This doesn't come up too often ... a 23,000 mile GLS which looks to be in pretty nice condition from the photos and video. Sold today at auction.

It did well at £18,500, unfortunately it needs to be in a museum as with such low mileage you would no want to use it very much.

Sorry for the double post - just saw the thread about this in the other forum.

This one isn't as bad as the R32 on BAT which had 97 miles and sold for $104k. In that case, as soon as you put a few thousand miles on the car, it's value drops significantly. Not to mention if you got into even a minor accident with it.
