On Saturday I bought a 95 C280 with 63K miles and a complete service history.
The car is in excellent condition, although it needs floor mats and a good
detailing. For 9K, I thought it was a good deal.
Opinions seem to differ on this particular model (some consider good, since it
is used as a taxi in europe, albeit with a 4cyl engine, others view it as an
abomination) but I would love to hear the experiences of this newsgroup's
I have a couple of questions relating to parts:
1. The car has only one key. Do I need to get duplicates from an MB dealer?
2. The car is missing its jack. Where might I get one of these?, and lastly
3 I want a set of black floor mats (the car is silver with grex tex). What is
a good source for these?
