Ok. The Harlem Edition is in the shop Radiator fan was determined to be bad. An initial quote of $5,700.00 was floated out there. I didn't blink, as that was for the full list of the things I had talked about having done including new headlights. So, I put out a heavy wish list and the Shop Manager countered with a see if your serious number. I didn't blink cause I'm not playing, he got the message and said the shop can get me where I want to be. Which is cross country to the Pacific Coast Highway. My own Parts list is 1263.44 plus 311.84 shipping so 1600.00 dollars for Radiator fan, radiator support, Radiator, Condenser, Front Bumper cover, front impact bar. and all related items. Some items may not be needed and some items may have been over looked. All my parts would have come from MBONLINEPARTS.COM. My parts list does not Include headlights which I will source myself and struts which will have to wait. I also am not including the Fluids and a/c recharge cost and of course Labor.
Big Note the item I actually must have, the radiator fan is less than 90 dollars. lol
Now I bought my smart with front end damage. Nursed it back together and drove it 20,000 miles. I am taking this opportunity to replace all that was damaged. And get rid of some of the shoe stings and wire clothes hangers holding some things in place lol.
We will just see how this plays out.
