Hello everybody. Just an update for those interested...
This is the case of the CL500 obediently sitting in the parking lot just
below my wife's office window and the guy in the Jeep Wagoneer who
couldn't manage to get his shift lever all the way into "park" before
stepping out of his vehicle.
Yes it did back itself all the way across the parking lot (building up
speed all the while) and smash into our pristine CL500.
MB was going to ship the car to California because there are no
certified body shops in Alaska that can work on these aluminum CLs.
Anyway, MB decided to send a technician and his equipment to Anchorage
to do the repairs. Work started this past Monday.
All this only took five weeks to arrange because the SPOM (Service Parts
Operations Manager) for our area was "unavailable" to authorize it.
Incidentally, we've only owned the car since April and we've already had
the instrument cluster replaced. Kept blacking out...
I dread to think what's next.

You shouldn't think like that! I know its hard not to, but im like
that also. Constantly thinking something is going to happen to my
Mercedes... I can't park it here someone is going to scratch it... hit
Constant worrying! Thats the price you pay for having a Merc
