Best Parts Shop - Shipping To Australia

Hi All,

I thought I would ask, as I just contacted my local Mercedes dealer in Melbourne. Australia for a quote on door sills for a SLK and they quoted me $250 each which is almost triple what everybody on this forum seems to have paid.

Does anyone know of a good parts retailer regardless of where they are that ship internationally with good rates?

I would rather buy from US or EU than get ripped off by greedy dealers here in Australia.

Won't lie, definitely left a sour taste in my mouth for my first Mercedes experience after coming across from Lexus.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

MB of South Atlanta will ship directly to Australia, and charge MSRP which is usually half the local AU dealer price.

Other webstores ship via freight forwarders, so what you save on parts you lose on account fees and exorbitant air-express shipping rates. Even then, it's still cheaper than buying from your dealer.
