    Do MB dealers sell second-hand parts?

    I make the assumption that dealers and their service parts shops have on ocassions been requested to remove parts and eqipment from various models of cars to complete an upgrade (as opposed to the common replacement of a faulty item). Where does the non faulty swap-outs get sold? Alternatively...

    Audio 20 (Back to basics issues)

    The heated seats and Airscarf are already on-board! Presently have an VVC MGF (which everyone accepts is a poorly built car) but with a number of I.C.E installations, the audio courtesy of Hertz and a 'Genesis amp' provided a fantastic sound with no distortion.

    MB Salesman add - on! Yes or No?

    Thanks for all the information, I may get the Gap Insurance, but will shop around for that. I actually like detailing cars, so I was a bit hesitant about the paint protector, but was willing to bend on the purchase as it's our first 'brand new' buy. I think I will leave the wheel insurance even...
