Start with Dr. Fatty at - Wholesale European Parts - Mercedes / BMW / Volvo / Saab / Porsche and more!

Be sure to ask for the "Poosey" discount for the best price. He knows MB parts and can help you get the best price on QUALITY MB parts, not the URO crap.

If you're looking for cheap, don't bother him. If you want the best price on a quality OEM part, he's the guy to talk to.

I've always had great luck at places like Napa, Autozone, Western Auto, et al. If you want general body parts, like fasteners or clips, look to a local body shop. For transmission bits or rebuilds, try Amaco (I had mine rebuilt in Ft Collins in 2005 and it's still going strong). Engine parts and seals can be found in a number of places online (Autohaus, Peachparts, others), and of course, eBay. Look for the vendors who sell lots of things in their store or have a real, physical store that uses eBay as advertising. I've had a lot of luck there too.
