1996 SL600 Burl Wood Steering Wheel Available

Many people have asked me about my Burl wood steering wheel form my SL600. Since it would not fit on my 560SL I have put it up for sale along with the rest of my parts on E-bay. Check it out. I have also put up the instrument cluster and a few other things.

eBay Motors: Mercedes 129 R129 W129 SL320 SL500 SL600 Steering Wheel (item 250314913916 end time Nov-02-08 05:54:44 PST)

For all my 129 parts see my store.

I was excited at first, but then I saw the price. Egads!

I'm really not trying to be rude, but good luck getting $500 (or anything close to that) for a 13 year-old used wheel, especially when you aren't even including the airbag. That's a rip. Identical wood wheels are regularly on eBay for that price, except they're brand-new and not used.

Come down to $300 or $350, and throw in the airbag, and I'd be interested. Otherwise, I really doubt that's going to sell. For that price whoever is looking at it will just buy a brand-new one.

Also, FWIW, if you want a wood wheel in your 107, this will fit a 1986-1989 560SL.

And notably enough, it's $549, and brand-new not used. Lol.

But my dad had told me that a fool is born every day.
Why not $500 plus shipping. Ehehe
Most don't ck.

It's already sold. Remember, things are worth exactly what someone will pay.

Unbelievable!

What idiot would buy a used wheel that has very little time left before it starts cracking, for the same price as a brand-new wheel costs?

Wow. I am really scratching my head over this one!

Don't talk about me like that! Just kidding. It is a nice wheel though.
