Car bought new in July of 2009; one of the 1000 (or so) brought in by Mercedes; converted by G&K.

29,5xx miles. yellow in color (this was the color when purchased). the original color according to the trim code was silver or gray.

just replaced spark plugs, oil and filter (Mobil 1 0-40wt) performed regularly.

well kept; wife is ready for "new paint". :)

come and get it.

Minor correction.

Mercedes had NOTHING to do with the GK cars.

They were brought over and converted strictly by GK.

Most US smart centers won't, can't and aren't allowed to provide service to any 450.

mercedes dealers and the 450

with respect to the comments regarding having difficulty getting parts and service (from a MB dealer), this was 100% true when Penske had control.

Once Mercedes recognized the 450 "as one of theirs" and began selling the 451 at their locations, this situation was reversed. My MB dealer (MB of Georgetown) will order parts and will provide service.

While not positive, I'm fairly sure that the MB dealers that carry the 451 will do the same.

I'll post pics by the weekend.
