Hey dont feel so bad toward Mercedes..... I mean ok the parts may cost a fortune and all that but think of the safety...im from Australia and a couple of months ago a man was driving his 1998 E320 and a semi-trailer fell on top of it. The car was a total wreck but he walked out of it with a cut up hands. I wouldnt compromise my life for the price of parts thats for sure. Same thing happened to my dad, he was driving his 1987 W124 230TE and someone ran through red lights straight into the side and the whole car was a write off. My dad got out without injury and not even the glass broke. Im sorry, your opinion might differ alot but thats what I think. Id pay!
