Luna, keep an eye on this and either make the insurance company buy it for you or just use it as a comp.

Thanks Fonzi, I will. What a coincidence. I purchased my 2002 Porsche Boxster S, from Alex at this place in Arizona back in 2004. Great guy and they always have some amazing vehicles.

My apologies for the long email but my I sincerely hope there are some tidbits in here you can use. One final thought is that picking up the phone to call Mercedes Motoring in LA for sales comps of your model might not be a bad idea. They may be more than willing to share...
No need to apoligize! I am very thankful for such great post and all of the info that it contained. I am glad that it worked out for you in the end.

UPDATE

So here is what has happened so far... The adjuster for her insurance company (heartford) met with me and took photos of the car. He loved the car and how clean it was. He was upset that this happened to it. He submitted his review and photos to their department that handles "special" vehicles. A week later (on April 21st) I received a call from the rep who is handling the claim. She said it looks like the vehicle will be totaled, and she asked me to submit to her any valuations or apprsials that I have of the vehicle. I told her that I have a call in to a few places and I am waiting to hear back from them. The first guy is www.stevelindin.com and the other is a place out of Albuquerque. For now I am adding up all of my receipts of the parts that went into the vehcile.

Check out this link for Hagerty Valuation, there was a spike in value at the beginning of 2015.

I will keep you guys posted.
