I have wasted enough cash on URO crap over the past 15 years. First disaster was wanting to go cheap on the 72 220D because I got her for $120. Seals for doors, trunk, windows were all wrong in almost every manner. Too fat, too soft, too large or small, wrong felt or covering, profile was off. The body shop used that crap on my w124 and the windows and doors never sealed right again. On both cars the rubber failed (originals lasted 15-30 years) and the aged stuff was better than the new URO which crumbled within three years.
I got screwed over by an eBay seller who repackaged URO shit into a OE factory bag. I could not understand why I had such trouble getting it to seat, it was too big and large, and looked nothing like what the original seals had been made of.
Get the parts from Germany
