Thanks for more info guys. I looked at a C220 and a C280 today. Everything looked good on the cars - i checked all areas for paint oeverspray, vin numbers in door jams/hood area, etc. One question though - in checking out the trunk area of both cars - where the spare tire is kept, I could see all the sealants, light assemblies all looked ok. On the 220, the entire trunk was painted the same color as the body - silver. On the 280, the trunk had white paint everywhere except near the battery area. The "beam" that a cd changer and ultimately the bumper would attach to seemed half painted, and had a stamp on it... V 1 ... or something like that. Both cars checked ok on carfax for what it's worth, and both drove great. Any thoughts? Both are one owner cars.
