Looking at two R350's...advice on which to get needed

The first is a black, 2006 loaded with every option. Off lease 30k miles. Dealership bought it at off lease auction. No service records though. I do like all the options and the color.


The second is a 2007 white. No navi., no suspension, all other options...but, here's the funny thing about it.... the orig. owner had it painted white because he didn't like the alpine rain color. He then sold it to a friend of a friend without telling them it had been painted. The car was caught up in a suit and the second owner only put 20 miles on it. It has roughly 19k miles. Carfax lists no accidents and matches up with the story. Still kinda fishy.

asked $27, offered $25k.

Any advice REALLY appreciated.

Forget the repainted car, it's virtually worthless.

Good to know original in-service date, as that will tell you how much warranty is left. Ask dealer if this could be a CPO car, i.e. eligible for the Mercedes extra year of warranty.
