I certainly plan on fixing the problems, after I buy the car! I apologize for not stating my intentions earlier. I didn't think it mattered. Someone I know is thinking about buying a new W211. They don't want to spend any more money on the 124. I'd like to make a fair offer. I've been a dealer tech for fifteen years so I'm not too worried about fix-up costs. I'm told it's worth $4,000-5,000 on a trade-in, but I wanted to poll the members of this Forum to see if I can come to some general consensus. Thanks
Well, did you buy the car?
You've been a dealer tech for 15 years? Is your current car a Mercedes?
