Something does not compute, It spent most of its life in South Florida,Mercedes of Southampton in NY shows the vehicle as a "Certified vehicle" and then it ends up at a auction back in Florida with only 200 more miles on the speedo and four weeks later

I think the New York-Florida trips w/o ODO mileage suggest that the car was trucked up and back. Ask, they should be open about it. I predict the car was sold at a Manheim Auction.
