Well, I drove 2hrs to see this car anyway, and I get there and am informed that it indeed has the afformentiond upgrades.
Considering that I thought the price was a great deal anyway, I was very pleased with this information.
I am curious though, I haven't found any information suggesting this was an option at this time, but was told the original owner (2nd owner now) had it armored from the factory.
Out of curiosity, has anyone seen many of these? Or this option available back then?
Also, the car has about 97k, AC works but hasn't had the usual things go wrong yet (condenser is it?), vacuum assist is fine, which seems to be the most common issues if I'm not mistaken.
Brakes and rotors have all been recently replaced and rubber has <3k (miles) on them.
Anyway, all in all this car is beautiful and always maintained by MB. Am I mistaken or is a price <$17,00 quite reasonable?
Thanks for any input.
