Where to buy MB auto parts?

Hey yall....I'm a newbie from Texas. I drive trucks with diesel engines but have never owned a Mercedes and need a lil help. Tomorrow my husband and sons are picking up a 1981 300D with 140k miles that was given to me. It's in great condition and has been stored in a garage since 1998 and has not been driven at all. Where is the best place to buy parts for a Mercedes? I'm about 50 miles north of Houston.

Parts.com links to an MB dealer in the Chicago area that sells the full catalog for a good discount. Same thing as shopping at the dealer, just cheaper (no free coffee, though).

For lots of things many people (myself included) send their business to autohausaz.com. They mostly sell OEM stuff and ship for free once you spend $50 (I still get a warm feeling when a heavy brake rotor ships free!). They probably get 90-95% of my business, with parts.com getting the remainder.

There are many others, but that's pretty much it for me.

Hope that helps.
