You can get it from GAHH for about half of MB.

I just found out today that my Step-Father works for them. Cool....

Have 2 small tears on the drivers seat cushion but other than that, my interior is perfect, luckily while my car was in the shop yesterday, I bumped into a guy who just had his 300SE w126 reupholstered in leather because his drivers seat was really bad, we had the exact same cloth upholstery, luckily, he had the old cloth stashed in the trunk then asked him what he wanted to do with it, he said most probably it will end up in the trash, I asked him if I could have it instead of going to the trash. Now I'm a happy man with the treasure that I got.

I think its cheap :D Some are much more expensive!

But its always the same - people start crying, if they shall pay for a goodie :cool:

I got some brand new leather upholstery for the W126, mostly black. Nobody ever has been sitting on em,
but if i tell an interested person, what i want, they start crying :crybaby2: And if i tell them, what Mercedes asks
for it - they just get crazy. BTW - most of the leather upholstery at MB is sold out. If nobody wants em now - i can wait :D

I agree with you Roland, I just post stuff I find as information for the guys just in case some one may need or is looking for something. But you are correct, every time you put something up you get the whiners who claim costs to much, don't like it, or just plain pick it apart. Look if you guys (and you know who you are) can't afford it or are just plain to cheap to open your wallets, don't rain on the other members parade who may benefit from some of this information.

Thats it! In Germany we say: Es war schon immer etwas teurer, einen besonderen Geschmack zu haben...

or in other words: If you want Benz, pay Benz :D

To be honest - i´m not rich and i can´t afford everything i want to. I´m just able to do a lot of things myself
and i´m working at one of the best W126 specialised workshops here in Germany. Some other guys break
their bones by changing a fuse and have to pay for jobs on their car. They don´t care about that, because
they use their time to make money to fix thing on their car. So on both ways we can afford our little luxury.

If someone offers a very good set of Aero 1´s for 10 Benjamins, thats to much for me. But is it to much for
the rims? I would keep my mouth shut at this offer and look for something cheaper.
But those lamers dont - they always cry, fair price or not.

Whoa, I wasn't raining on anyones parade or crying. Considering this is an open forum I thought I was entitled to my opinion. The "cheap" and "can't afford it" comments are unnecessary. Everyone does what they can with what they have.

And it is expense (In the US atleast), World Upholstery has the fabric for $65.00 and they supply you with samples before you purchase anything from them. If something like this is posted I think people should know they have other options that's all.

When you come on and put up that something is expensive in your eyes, dont cut it down, you may never know if someone may just need that.

You do have a opinion, you can post anything you want as other places people can get items. But world upholstery may not have what someone needs and the more outlets the better, what is someone will to pay, hey whatever they will if they really need it.

I am just putting up information about options that are outside the very limited resouces here in the U.S. Mercedes tuning in Europe is very big and they have so much more items avalible for our cars.

I have had several PMs about where and how I got my wald kit, I have sent them the full info on how to get one sent to the U.S. and the cost, did any of them PM back a hey thanks for the info, no no no.

I find now that any research I do or have done regarding parts or other items will not be posted anymore. I posted the tunershop.de for wheels and other custom items that and that he is a direct importer, got beat up on that post. posted some cheap SEC hoods, got cr_p on that post, So as of now no more information posts from me. I will only share my information with a few via phone or pm.

This is one reason I have never joined these forums in the past with all the different mercedes I have owned and tuned.

So for parts
I didn't mean anything personal by my earlier post. Others, including myself, appreciate your information. The site that you got your borbets is great, along with the wald info.

And you're right , different outlets for items and materials is great. I just recently started looking for fabric so my knowledge is limited, hence asking if it was the going rate. No need to get personal, have a good day :)

Hi dude - my mistake!

I didn´t want to offend you or your posting. If i would have written my post
in german, you would have recognised, that i didn´t mean you. Sorry for my
bad expression.

As i said, my job is selling used and new parts for the W126 and its all the same
every day. "i´ve seen that cheaper on OFAS, i´ll buy it there..."
Some weeks later they come back and buy quality parts ;)

...and i thought, you live in dream land for AMG parts :D There are much more
parts in the States than here in Germany. And another big difference is the question
of originality. Most german W126-drivers want their cars just as they left Stuttgart.
Spoilers? Fat rims? OMG!!!! I´m a lonely tuning guy :D Thats why i love this board :D

I get Mercedes Tuner magazine from germany, Das unabhangige Magazin der Mercedes-Scene, und Mercedes-World Unabhangiges Magazin fur die Mercedes- Community. and they have some great customs. In a land of AMG as you call it Roland, these crazy people here think they have gold and want crazy money. I hate AMG, I would rather spend my money with Wald, supersport.de for sportauspuff, MH-Dezent, inden Design, maxi-tuner, Kuhn autosport, and the many others.

I will be in Germany in June and in Budapest at the film market, When I get to Germany I will get my car from my cousins house and get you a Bier.
