SL centre console

My first entry regarding my SL 350 2003 model, which I purchased about 4 weeks ago, great car.
Unfortunately after buying I have found that the centre armrest/console has a broken latch. Turns out that this is a common fault. I have been back to the garage who are prepared to pay for a 'used' replacement part as new part is £360, ouch. they are struggling to find one in 'dark grey' leather from any 'breaker'
Are there any suggestions as to where to get one of these in the UK?

Thanks Chris
