In Illinois, I can buy a car with the previous owners signature on it, not dated, and never show it as my own.
Or Open Title. This way no tax is paid to the state on title transfer. Not an uncommon method, but not the proper way.

All in all, this looks like a dealer. Not that it's a bad thing, but some honesty would be nice.

Yeah, that's what I thought. Same here in TX. It became very common a few years ago when the state started using Presumptive Value, not what the person tells he/she paid for the vehicle, when determining the amount of tax to collect when registering it.

ok cool thanks for all of your inputs, if anyone is really interested please call me at 630-330-4336 my name is steve... thanks!!

just to clarify everything, i purchased this car about 8 months ago and personally put all of the time and work into it and am just looking to sell it.. they call them flips, i have no reason to plate the car therefore i put my dealer plate on it so i can drive it and let people test drive.

regardless we have been in the mercedes benz business for over 25 years and we know our cars. this just happens to be a personal flip.

but keep arguing please it keeps my thread at the top thankyou
