Lol, speaking of telling people to F off. He just called me back again 30 seconds ago and I told him that I wasn't intersted because it was so sketchy and he started trying so hard to push the fact they were supposedly accredited by Wal-Mart and post ads on hundreds of websites. Just a load of complete and utter BS. I had to tell the guy I was going to hang up because he wouldn't stop talking!

Offically from the dealer it was a 05 Benz SL500 AMG Sport. Similar to having a M-Tech package on a regular 5-series. It's not an M5... but has M-Sport. Same with SL500 AMG Sport. It's a factory option to have some AMG upgrades.

Correct!

Just like the CL500! it doesn't usually come with side mouldings and bumper mouldings... but some do, which is the amg package.

Look people, if he says he used them and he sold it to a dealership then it works and isn't a scam. it is a matter of preference. It's the same as being out of work and using an agency( head hunter ) to find you work. They get a fee from the employer for finding them suitable employee's. Human resources or the employer doesn't have the time to go through hundreds of resume's and interview to find someone. use an agency to do the leg work. They get a fee. Sometimes the fee comes off your end instead of the employers end. Infact in most cases this is how it works. it's a hidden cost to you and an agreement made between the company hiring and the agency. your worth 50k lets say. company looking is willing to pay 60k to an employee. Agency gets the 10k commission to hire you for 50k. employer is not permitted to advertise and agency will not disclose the true income they are willing to pay. Agency works within a range depending on what skills you have and whether you match the company's profiling.

I also got the call; it seemed legit, but I wasn't selling a 10-30k car to make it worth my while.
