I think the wood is actually real, not simulated. But anyway, the
only 2 sources would be either MB or an auto salvage yard. Given
that the car is relatively common, I would think you'd have a good
chance finding it at a salvage yard, especially if you are patient.
Try googling for used MB parts, etc.
Try ebay for used wood trim at good price. If you are handy, you can
refinish your own wood... use chemical stripper to remove that hard
finish... never sand or you will wipe those zebrano stripes away... or the
burlwood... which ever one you have.
Restain it and use piano lacquer finish. Be sure to finish the underside
with a sealer... anything to stop humidity from affecting the wood... which
is why it cracked.

I bought the plastic piece for the bottom left side of the driver's seat
on my 1987 300E at the dealer in 2003 for only $13.39. Could not
believe it was so "cheap" at a dealership, I guess it is a rapidly
moving regular replacement item.
