One Too Many Cars...Most Hassle Free Way of Consolidating?

I've got 2 Mini Coopers that I love: 2006 automatic with 35k miles and sunroof that I own outright, 2011 manual with 17k miles and a Thule kayak rack that I owe about $7k on. My older teens have moved out and I don't need to have both cars anymore, so I'm trying to figure out the quickest, most hassle-free way of having only one car. Because I work full-time and live with just my son, I really don't want to have people coming to my house as I try to sell a car on my own and I'm willing to lose a little cash if I can make some type of deal on the spot with a dealer. Again, I really do NOT want to do Craigslist and sell the car on my own. I have a good relationship with the Mini dealer where I bought both cars. A friend suggested I bring in both cars, explain the situation, and see what they come up with. Any other ideas about the easiest way to get me into one Mini? Ideas to make the cars more desirable to the dealer? What angles have I not considered?

What's the best way to sell my car in a different state?

I bought a Mini Cooper S in 2003. I loved the car and drove it a moderate amount until Christmas 2009, when I had to leave it at my father's house in Ohio and fly back to Chicago for work. I ended up leaving it there, and moving to New York City, where I'm clearly not going to be needing it for a while. So I need to sell the car. It's in pretty good shape, with remarkably low mileage (about 50,000 miles). Unfortunately, by now the battery is completely dead. I have no idea how to go about getting it fixed, or appraising it, or listing it for sale. What's the best way of getting it listed and sold?
