I traded my car in for a new car. The sales price was R10,000 more than I owed the bank, so the dealer gave me a R10,000 discount on the new car, i.e. I didn't physically receive the money.

Do I need to register this under Section 7 - Capital Gains - and if so, how do I calculate the base cost?

No, this is a personal asset and you do not need to declare it.
