    It's a category S salvage so any bidders should be cautious. Strange colour scheme IMO.

    would not be gambling much tho and far simpler to maintain than 500. i think i would be prepared to look at it. on a ramp..

    Horribly debadged at the back.
    Wooden steering wheels are not heated.
    Clearly a replacemnent steering wheel as the wood on the steering wheel is different to the wood in the car. Thus the frontal impact would have set of the airbag in the steering wheen and this has then been changed.

    Makes sense for it to be a S write off.

    AVOID

    There are better geniune cars for sale at comparable prices!

    Just my tuppence!

    The bonnet seems mis-aligned, I'd avoid it.

    The colour combo is listed in the MB 2003 SL brochure as "not recommended", I can see why. To many things not right on that car.

    Looks washed out. Needs red / black leather to provide a contrast to the silver

    Oops yes, the 350 seems to have fallen off, just leaving the letters "S" and "L". Can't understand why people do this, I would be proud of what it was.

    The rear of the Merc DTM cars only ever had the "C" on it, maybe they were copying it

    You have a very positive view of our fellow man JB, I wish I was that charitable.
