Anyone who does happen to have substantial info is welcome to contact me on my work line. PM me for info.

I think Jim meant that it seems given the reputation of MB and the reputation that MB trys to make everyone believe about it being a company of quality and class that this bullshit posting here does seem to be a low, no class, cheap and lazy way to go about trying to retrieve a stolen car, especially from the MB Financial organzation.

No, I just find the request ludicrous. There is no information of any value and I find the request for vigilante style assistance absurd. This is a criminal matter to take up with the police, not something to involve random internet persona in with such definitive information. Tell us, how many white SL55 AMG models were sold in 2003? What is the chance that the area you described "Brian" may be lurking and hiding has more than one white SL55? How do we distinguish a 2003 from any other model? How many SL55 owners really like their cars? And talk about them? On internet bulletin boards?

Yes, I guess I do find the concept of giving half assed information out and with the intent to gather what you already know are going to be at best a bunch of bullshit "leads" and then checking up on what are likely some of your good paying customers, in all likelihood exercising some unholy connections to sources of information you shouldn't have, and, whether they know it or not, violating their rights to privacy, all in your quest to reduce costs so you can offer "deals" with similarly offensive side effects to other paying customers. Reminds me of that ad for pills to fix your hayfever or something that has a side effect of uncontrollable anal leakage.

And all that is only the case if you are, in fact, who you say you are. You could be a scammer looking for the car because you want to buttfuck Brian because he stole your boyfriend. Or you could be looking for white SL55 cars to steal yourself.

Like I said, this is a matter for you to handle with the local authorities if you are for real. The fact that you would come to internet forums asking for help like this with so little meaningful information makes me think MBF is a cover, or, if not, they deserve to go out of business. Jim

I can assure you this is one of many things being done to gain possession of this vehicle. When dealing with thieves sometimes alternate means are necessary, since I know the driver of the vehicle I am going to recover is a member of many enthusiast websites, this is a logical step.

And on that note: Brian, just like I told you yesterday, an SL55 is simply not worth going through the huge legal mess you are facing.

Yes, he said he would be there because he didn't think that he would be welcomed at his moms house for mothers day.
