PPI in MN!

I'm looking for recommendations from Minneapolis/St. Paul people for a shop that can do a through PPI on a W124 Cabrio. The Mercedes dealer in St. Paul has a gorgeous (looking at the pictures anyway) triple-black one; too bad that's a 500 mile trip for me to go eyeball it.

Thanks!

If it's being sold by the dealer there is good reason to believe it's already had a meaningful pre-purchase inspection. My experience is it's really rare for a dealer to sell used cars this old, and I'd conclude this one is pretty special and something the dealer's proud of. Confidence inspiring, that is. They could even have all the service records.

That's the one! The Internet sales manager says it was the service managers personal car. Sounds good, but I'm OCD about due diligence on things with 4 wheels.

Or you could play off the fact that they're trying to sell a convertible in Minnesota with winter coming, offer them twelve grand and see if they bite. If they do, I'd say at that amount you're pretty safe as far as the car needing a couple of things here and there.

If you're really OCD, go out there, test-drive the thing over to Foreign Affairs in Hopkins and see what Warren has to say about it.

Personally, I doubt there's anything wrong with it, Maplewood Imports isn't that kind of a place.
