Pricing help on 2003 manual is300

Hello,
I'm looking for help in pricing my car. I'm the original owner of a 2003 red manual IS300. Its getting up there and has 201,000 miles, but is very clean inside and out. Just your usual tiny chips/dings here and there. I've got two kids/car seats stuffed in the back so it's time to think about getting a bigger car. I've had all the service work done at the dealer. Any suggestions on the price I should list it for? And where should I list it? I'm in Southern California. Thanks for any help.
Joan

Once any car gets over a certain mileage its going to be harder to sale. i would say you could ask 8500 if she is truly as clean as you say. but i would be prepared to take 5500-6500.

Thanks, joney3jonez. I have the business cards of two lexus mechanics that are interested in buying her (or were last year), so I wanted to have a number in my head before contacting them.

Location matters the most here. I agree with joney3jonez: if it's truly as clean as you say and everything is in good working order, suspension and steering are tight, that $8500 figure is close. The mileage on the engine here really hurts you the most, as noted. Maybe the Lexus mechs understand this though and you can prove to them the engine is healthy; service records go a long way here.

I assume you've had your second 90k mile/timing job performed already? If not, that may bite you too.

Yes, I had the major service done at 180,000. I've never had any issues with the car, have only had to do all the preventative maintenance. But that still starts to add up once the mileage gets this high, especially doing it at the dealer.
