If you think ebay is cheaper for parts

Rare part, that German Star is not carrying nor autohousaz, but MB of South Atlanta is selling for $8.50. They add shipping, so comparison on single item will not come cheap, but when you order few items, the shipping doesn't add much.
So compare how much ebay sellers want for it. Note some listings are for single pad, some for a set, but still

I've often found items cheaper through parts.com; which ships from MB dealers throughout the country.
And, if I talk nice to the local dealer and I can usually get the wholesale price.
Not a lot of DIY Benz owners in these parts...

I actually order the parts from site sponsor ECS Tuning
They seems to have the lowest parts prices, but slap me with $20 shipping on small package. Still come few bucks cheaper than competition.
It is hard work to shop around
