Hi guys and gals, so have a friend that offered me her car for $2,500 she's desperate to get rid of it ,she bought a new car.
its a 2002 CLK 430, I know the history of the car since knowing Karen for 9 years, her boy friend Gary is a good guy and bought it for her years ago new, Gary works for a San Diego MB dealership , head of parts department for over 20 years.
Condition of car:
Cluster non opt
front bumper cracked
valve cover leak, according to Gary
drivers seat motor non opt
minor interior work
Car got rear-ended 2018 no frame damage, just bumper issue,Karen had it fixed, but insurance salvaged the title
112K local miles
always a southern California car
New plugs and wires
tires recently replaced

I been around Benz's for years and do all my own work so DIY is no issue
She's has to sell the car and told me make me an offer, limited parking where she lives and has insurance on it.

I've read up a lot on this model and they seem to be pretty reliable cars. and parts are fairly cheap.
Car is registered and good till July 2020
What would be a good offer?
Thanks John!

Judging by the pics I'm guessing 1800.00 max! Looks to be in decent shape, but that rear ashtray door is hard to find if the ends are broke! If the maintenance records are up to date, and carpet is not to hard to get cleaned I move in on it.

Thanks that's what I was thinking, wife said $1500, still need to go check it out, if paint is bad its a no go, I can fix all mechanical's.
When I worked with Karen 6 years ago, I came to work at 5AM and noticed her Drivers side passenger window was busted out, some early morning thief stole her purse.
