The Score
This car has always been garaged. Only seen the rain twice and valet parked three times under my watch. It's is being sold as I'm about to buy a new car. This is a car that has been no one's headache. From what I know I'm the 4th owner. California car. Sold to a dealer after 3 or 4 years. He sold it to a friend. The friend owned it for many years and traded it in on a newer Benz (2005) Rumor has it he wanted it back as it's a true convertible and the newer ones just don't have the trunk space. I have owned it for about 5 ½ years and put about 24,000 miles on it. It was my fun car. When I was doing my research I found the 1999 had just upgraded its interior and I liked the look better than the older ones.

No mechanical work needs to be done.
I'm 6'2" and with the driver's seat all the way back the seat heater does not work. When I move the seat up it does. The passenger head rest need to be fixed. It separates and was this way when I got it. Was told that the heater and this problem was about a $300 fix who is shop is located across the street from me. When I got it in cold weather some of the time I believe it takes a while for the read out for A/C system to show fully.
Convertible soft top:
In Very nice shape. The plastic window needs someone to take the film layer off. Hard to see out of. I know there is a product that can make this much better. Never did get it better as I have the Panoramic top on in winter and top down in the warm months.

Interior + Trunk and Under the hood.
I consider it to be in super nice condition.

Sadly I scraped the curb on the right front rim while parking one time. Not too bad
It has a very light scratch on the driver's rear side. I did not see it when I bought the car until after. Never bothered me too much. More so me not being told .Once putting on the Panoramic top my friend damaged the paint. It's located on the back top near the pin hole guide for the top. Was taped on the rear bumper and has one tiny scratch. If I did not tell you I don't think you would find it.
The red paint is very red and has a super shine. More photos' upon request, but if really interested best to see it yourself in person. The car is located in Napa.
First $17,000 gets this beauty
