People tell me I can get parts from the dealer for this car a lot, maybe that's true in California or in the south, where there are still a lot of these Mercedes gassers from the 70's, but in the Northeast, Mercedes dealerships are not very interested in selling you some bolts that they would have to order from Germany. They usually just don't call back, or don't follow through.
I have never seen another 230 in person, and never found another one on Craigslist in or around my area. This seems to be my downfall.
If someone tells me where I can definitely get them I'd much rather replace them, but people I know who say they've done head gasket jobs on these cars say there is a spec for wear and reuse, so if I can find out that information, I'd like to do that too.
