Starmark cars are factory pre-owned (FPO) with a warranty that can go up to 100K miles (actual mileage) on models up to eight years old. They are the most expensive used MB's, so it follows that they are in the best condition. MB dealers around here don't sell any used cars below $10K, and the bottom limit for a StarMark car is about $19K. A few months ago Automobile magazine had an article about FPO cars; Jean Lindamood Jennings bought an FPO 1995 E320 wagon.
I keep an eye on my local dealership's inventory either in the local paper or you can look at http://www.mbusa.com
then go through "Pre-owned" and follow the link to where you enter your Zip code, and it will take you to your local dealer's web site. From there you can browse the inventory.
