    Now think about that ...its just a relay. If it was just a relay why would he not have already put it in to sell the car easier......

    Its at the ripe age that the compressor could have failed...and if its bad good chance a air strut or struts are bad. Without having it checked its your gamble. Ask him if its just a relay...go ahead and put it in then you might buy it.

    MB are mighty costly to maintain -- when you say "down" it sounds to be problem with airmatic system. car is almost 10yrs old and did i memtnion MB are mighty costly to maintain. In CA advertising new c-class lease @ $349 (their new C is a nice whip - but not an s)
