2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG: Missing Tow Hook Cover

August 20, 2014

2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG

For quite some time now, the little plastic cover that conceals the rear tow hook of our  2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG has been missing. We're not really sure when or how, but I'm guessing it was stolen. Why? Because as I discovered, the replacement part is $95 (they originally quoted me $135) with another $45 needed for the paint.

So that's $130 for a tiny piece of plastic, which sounds like a viable reason for the unscrupulous owner of another AMG CL-Class to boost our cover. Apparently, obscure parts for rare cars turn out to be expensive. Who'd have thunk it?

Of course, it would be even more expensive if we had someone paint it for us, but I was going to have no part of that. And by that I mean I'm going to hand it over to Langness to do it, so look for his post soon.
