2009 E350 W211 Arctic White (dads car)
Hey people of the GL thread. For some reason I started looking at salvage yards. I know there is a very good one very close to me and I just went to their website. I've looked at their stuff before, but didn't think much of it, I just wanted to see what they have. Now I've been looking at used cars and have kinda given up for now. My dad recommended looking at some minor damage cars for a few grand. Looking specifically for Mercedes, I used the local search, and after a bit I found an amazing 2009 GL450 in either Sand Beige Metallic or Pewter Metallic, not sure what color it was. After a while, I kept looking and I found a perfect looking 2009 S550, but after Carfaxing it, it wasn't as promising as the Carfax from the GL. The GL is at the location very close to me in the Inland Empire and the current bid was $1,000. The car is going on sale on Tuesday, which gives us a bit of time to just check it out. Bodywork was perfect, not even a single scratch, a beautiful interior which was in a attractive color. I never thought about purchasing a GL until now. Reading the Carfax, I would expect it to be bad I was wrong, since it was salvage. It was a total loss and the airbags deployed. But it was a 1-owner vehicle which compared to the S-Class had 3. Also compared to the S-Class, it had been properly maintained at a dealer until it was crashed 2 years ago! That's what I find as the weirdest thing. It had been repaired since then and even after that it had been maintained at a Mercedes dealer in Anaheim in 2011. That was the last record of the car on that report. My dad made an account on the site, and will definitely check it out soon before it's selling date on the 31st. Will also post pics. Will keep you guys updated. Can't download the pictures enlarged, so i'll just link it.
