Purchasing a CLK 63 Black series- advice?

I am looking to trade my Ferrari for a CLK63 Black Series.
I found a local dealer with a one-owner car,

VIN# WDBTJ77H68F247366
CLK63 Black Series

It is white, with 11,000 miles.

The car is a little rough for this low mileage, with the driver
bolster worn way more than average and there are a few
rock chips despite a clear bra that is yellowing and needs to
be replaced. It was bought at Riverside from M-B Financing.

The Carfax shows an accident when near new in Utah, and
the seller says it was something minor, like a parking lot
fender-bender. The car was in a large garage and I looked
it over but did not see any serious repair issues or problems
with the paint. I really am not seeing any glaring issues that
effectively justifies a $71K price other than an ice-cold
local market and difficulty selling an internet car with an
accident history.

Anyone have any words of wisdom? I am thinking to have a pro
inspector look over the car and go for it if he says cool. It's
still under the M-B warranty and has no mods.

Thanks,

-Ron

Definitely have a pro look at it as a pre-purchase inspection. But if you want the real nitty gritty on that series look for the CLK forum in the AMG section. Many more actual owners will see your questions there. Good luck and welcome to the forum.

p.s. Just opened your link. 3 owners in 11,000 miles raises a red flag for me.

p.p.s. Not sure if you will find your native forum under the Coupe/Convertible or the AMG section because I don't see you car listed under the headings in either section. I'm sure you'll find it somewhere.

Thanks,

For some reason I thought there had only been 1 owner.
No wonder it's been so beat up

I would not trade for a CLK 63 unless my Fazzazz was not a 2 seater.... the 4 seaters are known as whales to the cognescenti
