It would be interesting to hear what specific Mercedes part you could not get from the dealer? If they for instance are out of "crate engines" for the 190E 16V, you might still be able to purchase the engine parts one by one...
And by the way, my authoized Lexus shop tells me they have never seen an example of obsolete parts for their cars. Yes, I know the oldest cars are still "just" 20 years old next year, but still, it is not bad!
There are many brand doing much worse, including SAAB, Audi, VW, Volvo, Ford etc and even Porsche...
-91 190E 2.6 Sportline 5-speed (now sold)
-92 300TE -24 valve (now sold)
-95 Lexus LS 400 (all options except sunroof)
-91 SAAB 900i -16 (just over 80.000km)
-06 Renault Clio (daily beater)
