Paint issues with recently purchased E500
My husband and I purchased a used E500 in 11/07. Although we love the car we are considering trading it for something more fuel efficient. We took the car to a local dealer last week who told us that the car had had the front left and right fenders, the hood, and the trunk repainted. We were very skeptical of this so I took it to a local Audi bodyshop, they said the same think. I just spoke with the dealer who sold us the car and he informed me that the paint is thicker on E500's in that area and reassured me the car had not been repainted, they all come from the factory that way. Now I'm not sure who to believe, I've been searching online trying to find answers but I can find nothing regarding uneven paint or paint thickness on Mercedes.
Does anyone have any knowledge of this? I am having a hard time believing the dealer.
Thanks so much!
