site is looking good, finally some nice 124's up there

still would be nice to be able to search by chassis (for both cars and parts).. it probably doesn't matter much to the average MB buyer but the enthusiast crowd will likely find it extremely helpful...

1990 300TE 4MATIC Japanese-spec - 74,000 mi
1995 E300 Diesel - 327,000 mi
1983 250 German-spec - 227,000 mi
1992 400E
1994 E320 Wagon
1990 300E 2.8
1988 300CE Lorinser
1988 300TE
1990 300E

Parts....

Chassis/motor.

EG windows switches for a 123 are universal for chassis, but glowplug relay is only good for diesels...

Thumbs up searching by part number

I am parting out many R129 SLs, and I can tell you that organizing the parts by part number first would make your job the easiest. After all, the part numbers are stamped on practically any MB part. What matters is that you are able to handle this project in the first place, so you may want to keep it simple.

People often use many different names for the same parts, and there are easily misspellings. It can be tricky to find compatibility info within one chassis/series already, and that gets really tough when crossing over to other chassis.

If you want to be fancy, you could have people fill in part number, part name, and model compatibility that they know of, while making all that info searchable or listed in numeric or alphabetic order in each segment.

If you can pull this off even just by p/n, I will run a few dozen parts to try it out, and possibly list hundreds later.

Parts section added.

Thank you all for your input. Taking in cosideration your suggestions, I have completed the parts section.

Parts section is now up.

I have added a field so someone can enter Parts Number but that field is not required to be filled. Also you have to list by year and there is a Model field as well where you can type more than one model if applicable. Ex. E320, E430 E55 can be typed on the Model field.
Plus there is chassis field to type compatible chassis as well (ex: W210 & W211). Does someone know where I can get a list of all chassis numbers? I would like to have this field pre-generated. So that it will load all the chassis instead of having people enter chassis manually.

You don't have to fill all fields, but the more info you enter the easier will be for others to find your part. A few fields are required though.

Take a look at BenzList.com and if you have suggestions as to what needs to be changed or added let me know.

Also send me a message if you know where I can get a list of all chassis made by MB.

Thank you for your feedback. Hope this will help us all.

Do you think think this should be sticky in the for sale section?


Please comment if you find the site useful and would like to see it as a sticky.
