Smile My First Thead in BenzWorld Forum

Hello from Puerto Rico to every Benz lover out there:

This is Bengie Rodriguez, Realtor® and Commercial Real Estate Broker in Puerto Rico, also specialized in Luxury Homes.

I have had some Mercedes cars before (brand new 2005 SLK350, used 1998 CLK320 AMG) and now a 1999 SLK230.

Finding OEM parts and/or accessories for this SLK230 through Internet have been a nightmare. I am frustrated with my constant search. Maybe it is that I don't master the search criterias.

Anyway, my car is Silver exterior / black and cream two-tone interior. Looking at this all-peeled, deteriorated, chemically-affected dash components, cracked-plastic-glove-box, as well as the console and door panels, drives my crazy. This is my normal everyday view behing the steering wheel. So my need is to find, either new, used or junk yarded parts in good condition to restore this baby like new again.

Does anyone know a vendor, web site, friend or junk yard carrying any spares or new OEM parts?

I have being reading in this Forum about all of you who are suffering this paint peeling from the dash and console. I do not intend to re-paint. I prefer replacing with new, or almost new.

I need: dash (lower portion, the painted side), console, emergency brake handle, door panels (specially the handles), front grill inserts, rear lip spoiler, headers, and the red magnesium cover on top of the valve cover that reads "KOMPRESSOR".

Thank you in advance for any help. You can also call me at 787-422-2222.
