Poor choice.

OK so maybe the W202 (Is that what this one was?) is not the best effort Mercedes ever made, but trade it in for some rattletrap Chevy truck/SUV?

I saw some of these '08 Chevys at the car show in San Francisco, they even looked cheap and shoddy brand new. Only some effort went into the absurd Cadillac Escalade ones.

What else is wrong with the Mercedes, is the ashtray full?

<--- superschnelle 300 hp 10:1 ECE euro HV, Hochverdichtung = high compression (11/2011) ... Wie im Freien Fall. Nur horizontal.

Ditto. No doubt, the finest ever. But they had to go and f^ck it up with the W140 and finish it off with the W220.

But it still looks hideous, well to my standards, and I don't want to fork out the money which was an estimated $1200 to get a new bumper, vender and light cover. Well that's not gonna happen, too much money for what I want to put into this thing. I love my car, but after that happened to it, it's just an eye sore to me and it makes me sad I want to look at buying a new C230 like an 05 model or something because I love how the car handles, its safety, etc. But I know I won't get much money for the trade in, so it freakin' sucks. I dunno what to do I've also been looking at the GMC Envoy Denali, that is my favorite SUV style but I'm still undecided.

Anyway...would people look at my car and be like "that's a busted up Mercededes!" ? It's not bad looking just missing a light cover and if you come right up on it you can tell the bumper is cracked, but I don't want people to think that I don't take care of my Benz
Hey babe! Where you been girl? Merry Christmas!!

Sorry to hear you still have the boo boo--on your car that is... Why don't you take the car to a dealer or two and see what they say: What is it worth as is? What is it worth fixed? How much C-class could you expect to get on trade-in and/or resale? And what would be their recommendation/s?

If you decide to get it fixed, I really would talk to bear if I were you. See if he's still willing/able to do something for "cost," and what might be involved. He came through Lawrence a month or so ago and we had dinner, so I can attest to the fact that he's a nice guy (don't tell him I said that), and is very good at restoring MBs. Lexington is only about 300 miles from SLT, and it might be worth a look-see.

In any event, keep us informed and have a great holiday season!!

Don't believe everything you think
