Unhappy W124 1988 300E Zebrano Console Wanted

OK, it's been a 2 year odessy and I'm at my wits end trying to find a zebrano shifter console piece that isn't cracked and doesn't look like the surface of the moon. Every used piece you try to buy on eBay looks just terrible. Most other 300E's consoles on the road don't look much better. Seems to be a big, big problem with the way MB put the resin over the wood veneer. My 1988 300E console started to crack back in 1994. And it was a garaged car all it's life!

Hard to believe the only option is the MB dealership that wants over $600 for it. Isn't there ANY other options out there? Aftermarket kit? Refinish? Anybody? Please?

Wow, 2 years?

This fellow on eBay has two that look good and are reasonably priced, banbury22 eBay.com. He's in the UK. US sellers seem to be asking higher prices, even including shipping. Nonetheless, it seems that you should easily be able to do much better than $600.

There is also a fellow in NC that refinishes for about $150: Heritage Woodworks.

I see you're new here. You should become familiar with this site's search tools. Completing your profile, including year, model and location, will be helpful to other users attempting to respond to your questions.

I have a brand new one that I didn't install in my 300CE because I ended up using one with the seat heater switch cutouts. I'll sell it to you for $175 shipped to the lower 48. Let me know and I can get a picture or two today.
