We wouldn't suggest losing the tow hook cover on your 2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG. It's a $130 part and that's when painting it yourself.

    You guys have never heard of eBay? I would bet this sort of thing is available used. Heck, you might end up buying back your own cover. LOL

    Hmmm, body color looks pretty close to duct tape color.

    Duct tape- what can't it fix?

    So you guys are starting to address the items of that $14k service quote? Guess this was not the most important issue on that list ;)

    May as well leave it open for all the towing that will be required

    I will admit that I can understand the paint being a bit pricy because I would expect them the blend it to the current shade the car is given its age but still $95 for a piece of molded plastic I still have to call bull on that one.

    come on ladies, you really need to do your homework.

    $65 from oediscountparts.com with free shipping. (from an MB dealer, in an MB box, with MB warranty)

    If you are not checking places like this before purchasing parts, you're simply throwing money away.

    paint can be sourced from a number of places for less than $20.
