buy my friend's benz

A friend of mine is selling her '97 Mercedes Benz 230 (88k mi). She has limited parking space and she's now driving a company car, so it has to go. Anybody looking for a good used car? I'll buy you several drinks at Cole's if you buy her car, just you and me since Jim's in Italy. More info below, posting is here, where you'll find plenty of interior and exterior pictures of the car.
1997 Mercedes-Benz C-230 (88k mi only!) - The Ideal Used Car - $9999

BODY: 4 door Sedan
EXTERIOR: Champagne body + tinted windows
INTERIOR: Leather, Beige, Wood-Grain Console (The Works!)

ENGINE: 4-Cyl. 2.3 Liter
DRIVETRAIN: Rear-wheel drive
CONDITION: Excellent!

*Kelly Blue Book reports the value at $11,165
*WOMAN owned and cared for.
*Very LOW mileage: only 88,000 miles! That translates to an average of 9,800 miles per year only.
*NEVER been in an accident, not even a little fender bender.
*Clean title history. Check it out for yourself: WDBHA23E3VF492867
*New battery.
*Passed smog check & safety inspection with flying colors.
*Detailed every 2 months -- even the engine is kept clean (with no fluid leaks and is free of any wear or visible defects.)
*Oil changed every 2500 miles (because owner is compulsive about keeping vehicle maintained).
*Gas level never reached under 1/4 of tank (for the same reason as above).
*Stock 6-CD changer (with cassette + AM/FM radio)
*Power everything (seats, doors, headrest, telescoping wheel, etc.)
*Sunroof and moonroof
*All original keys: 2 wireless + 1 valet (one of the wireless and the valet key are in excellent condition, because I never really used them)
*Runs and drives well!

This is my personal car and was hoping to keep it forever. But my company will be providing me with a corporate car, which leaves me no room to park this in my garage. If you're a Benz lover, I won't have to explain why this car is such a steal. If you've never had a Benz before, owning this car will turn you into a Benz lover. It drives so smooth and the turning radius is just incredible! You'll be amazed at how many narrow streets this car can make a smooth U-turn. It feels very safe and quite powerful, especially when entering the freeways of Southern California.
