Would you mind sharing the particulars of the deal? Sale Price, options, condition, service history etc?

I bought some heated seat covers but they are just not the same. Next one I buy will have the seat heaters. Otherwise I don't have any regrets after 2 years of driving mine.

What color did you land up with? Any interesting options?
Hi!
It's "Midnight Blue" on tan leather. Sometimes, you can't tell if it's blue or black. No out of the ordinary options. I bought it for the condition it's in, as well as its mileage and price. Also, the car lot let me talked to the previous owner, and I just felt OK with the whole thing. We'll see. So far so good, no leaks--I keep my fingers crossed. I don't miss the heated seats, but again I probably would if I lived in your area. On the other hand, a med. doctor once told me that heated seats can cause hemoroids. Never figured out if this was any true or if he was pulling my leg!

Your butt is on the seat not your poop hole. Further to that, the heating only goes for 30 mins or so. After an initial heatup, it only keeps it warm and not hot.

The DB904 Midnight Blue is my favorite, and an unusual one to find this car in, congrats! Don't know whether heated seats cause hemoroids or not, but they sure are nice on a cold winter's day. The MB seats heat up really quick too (my wife's wagon has the heated seats). When I trade my W210 for a W211 I'll get them next time.

Every midnight blue benz I have owned I called the "blue baron"...so enjoy your blue baron!

-Sure:
1998, 149K miles, $11.9K. Excellent conditon in and out. No rust that I can spot. Much less wear & tear than I expected. No leaks. There's a faint rattling noise in the driver's side heater vent. One foot mark at bottom of driver's door pannel (will try to get rid of it later.) Also: a small ding on the lower part of the front fender, & a couple of spots where clear coat peels (alongside roof trims and on front fender). I touched-up, compounded and waxed those spots, all OK now! Cup holder sometimes won't stay down and lid wont stay close. Tires will be OK for another year, maybe less (I like maximum wet traction). Records unkown besides what the previous owner told me and what's on the CarFax report. Seen and driven by a friend who worked at a Mercedes shop. Got his OK.
Options: see below.
Hope this helps! Please let me know if you would have bought it in these conditions.

From what I've seen available on the net including ebay, you seem to have gotten a pretty good deal. I hope it gives good service and that you enjoy it.
