Hello. Yesterday our Mercedes C280 was totaled, all front end damage. We have no option really but to part the car out to try and re-coupe some of the investment. We had liability only, and was at fault so we basically lost.

All the parts on the car are excellent and work, we thought maybe selling the parts cheap would be best rather than just junking the car, seems like a waste when someone may be able to get use out of what we have.

We are now on the look for another Mercedes C280 similar to what we had, but I think full coverage for sure this time. Does anyone know any good online sites for locating a 1997-1999 C280?

We've been searching eBay all night and found a couple nice ones, but I want to weigh all our options before diving in. If anyone is looking for any parts for their 1997 C280 I may be able to help.

Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry, our car had black interior. I am sure someone else on here may have items that you need, wish I could help.

Thanks for your interest.

Sorry to hear about your accident. I am glad everyone is okay, though.
Thank you. Everyone is fine, and no one was hurt. My mom had borrowed the car and totaled it. I was a little angry at first, but then I realized that it's more important she's okay. I still miss the car though.
