Before you start WWIII... remember its only a car! Let the lawyers straighten out the money, get a different car.

I get restless when I start seeing industry bashing as the result of these episodes.

If I recall the original repair was done by a MB dealer? Poor workmanship does not equal "fraudulent" business practice and in many instances is a qualitative judgement. As I said above, ANY car in a significant accident will have its value depriciated. This does not mean the body shop or the insurance industry is fraudulent. It does mean that no matter how good they are I will be able to tell a prospective buyer that an event has occured. Confidence is the essence of a good sale and the uncertainty of long term effects will stay with the car until the its value is gone.
