Want to buy a pair of W108 Wings? Forget it! MB officially says No More!

Just received confirmation that front wings for the W108 chassis will not be available any more, anywhere!

While I am tempted to raise a stink about this with Mercedes classic parts, I'm afraid that one voice might get drowned out

The front wings. But does it really matter? MB support for an iconic vehicle is ending and I'm not sure what we can do about it

I don't think MB has any control over "anywhere" beyond their own dealers. As has been stated, these are still fairly common.
