That is simply an older and less complete version of the EPC Online you were initially directed to. There are subtle differences between them, but all dealers now use the superior EPC system, which exists as a WIS component, rather than the older CD-ROM version you once saw. BTW, the Russian site does not include parts listings for U.S. versions.

I am not so shure about that, but you are the parts guy, it does reference "US" version and other world wide versions. I would take a look at it again, The russian site is not perfect but pretty good!

I must be missing something then. I can find no reference to 300SD, either 116.120 or 126.120 (neither of which were made available in Europe, though both were quite popular in the U.S.), nor can I find U.S. bumpers for a 380SL (107.045), only the small European bumpers. There are loads of U.S.-only applications/parts, those are just a couple of obvious examples I had always noticed on the Russian site.

In any case, you're right -- the Russian site is pretty good, but the EPC Online is really much better. Subscription is free, BTW.

My VIN is used when I access my subsription to EPC. For example, I never see any body part or upholstery colors other than mine.

NOBODY can provide you a CD of this information--any why would you want something that can become obsolete tomorrow anyway? LOTS and LOTS of part numbers are changed all the time because of improvements, etc.
Because the techician in charge of the parts department told me the program was installed into the computer and not connected to the internet.

Anyway, I already have the link and I don't want the cd anymore so it's a moot point to discuss about the cd rom.

What is a WIS component? I crossed referenced some of my existing parts against detali.com and it's very consistent.

Guys, I'm not a mechanic or an MB merchant or anything. I'm just an average guy with a European Benz that I meticulously maintain. Only reason I want access to the part numbers is so that I can just order damaged parts from my supplier without the need to bring my car to his shop or for him to see the part in particular.

So far this site is great.

This is doubtful. In any case if he knows what it is why not ask him? Nothing is a moot point around here once you've aroused our curiosity.

I did ask him. He could not give me an answer to my satisfaction, that's why I'm here asking the experts.

At least I found my answer here.

@Peter Gunther, thanks for the info Bro.
