any Benz junkyard in your area should be able to help you with that. You can
get parts really cheap when you can drive there and pick them up yourself...
I saved a fortune by perusing them in my area. Often, however, you can just
go with a new part. They're not terribly expensive online. The cheapest
online Benz part deal I've found is www.importeccatalog.com (and no, I don't
work for them :) Another to try is www.thebenzbin.com, but they're usually a
bit more expensive (by a few dollars here and there), but sometimes they
have parts the other doesn't. I hope that helps, but I guess that depends on
the parts you're looking for.
Hey Dan, I just scoped out a few items in the Importec catalog, and to be
honest, they're no bargain. I suggest you check out buymbparts.com...Rusty
can beat Importec's price on W123 Bilstein shocks, subframe bushings, Behr
radiators and a couple other items I checked on that I can't recall at the
moment. I've blown a fair amount of cash on old MB parts, but I vividly
remember what I spent on most of them...

Hey, good to know Russ!
I'll check it out. I've just been happy with the one place because they're
cheaper than the dealer. That alone made my day :) But I'll take a look at
the other place, these things are never cheap by any standard... Thanks!
1. TriStarPete.com for used parts. They are in Tempe, AZ and ship everyday via
2. PerformanceProducts.com for new products. They're in Van Nuys, CA and carry
a wide range of MB parts for all models. If you sign-up on their website for
their newsletter, they often send an Internet Only message that provides a 15%
discount for online orders.
I've purchased parts from both and have been very happy with both the service
and the price.
