Oh the dreaded topic has arrived :cry:

Last week as I was headed to some early morning appointments, a jacked up pickup stopped in front of me on the road (illegal). As i passed him he opened his door (also illegal in case the insurance co. is reading :) ). His door caught on my passenger side fender...

* Cost of repair....$1700.00 (US)

* Time spent at mechanic (est.).... 1 week

* Look on pickup guy's face when he saw HIS damage.... Priceless baby!!!

As much as I hate seeing my Benz busted up, it made me feel so much better when I saw Mr. Construction Dudes giant truck door reduced to a shred of its former self. My damage was a large fist sized dent in the front fender and the passenger mirror being knocked off, as well as some minor scratches. But the metal on the truck door was peeled way back :twisted:

No one was hurt - and it was an honest mistake on both drivers faults :roll: . But everyone reading this who has a Benz can rest easy knowing no matter how small the Benz...It's tough as a tank - and I've driven those as well.

2002 Black Char. pan roof. ghost face cd player (awesome) and auto stick.

Peace and drive carefully...Nice site btw

What is a ghost face cd player? Just wondering!
Panasonic makes what they call a "Ghost Face" indash CD player. The face is essentially a jet black screen that comes to life with tons of colors and menus (all touchscreen :wink: ).

...and for the true lazy man :D , a remote control 8)

Bling Bling :wink:

peace

How were you able to match up to the original equipment with the fiber optic cables?
Very carefully mph27 :)

Teckla Car Audio in the Minneapolis area (That's Minnesota, yah...) :lol:

They rigged it somehow... I can't remember. The steering wheel controls no longer work and the factory radio is always shut off (I never really dug the yellow radio lights anyway :? ).

I got used to using the remote.
