Not sure how many of you guys have seen this, but Mercedes has introduced a fully searchable database for classic parts, and the W140 is supported. You input your VIN and the page shows you a searchable list of every part available for your car. It's very expensive but there are probably things on there that can't be found anywhere else.


And they also have a nice section on the W140 itself. Nothing groundbreaking but still nice to see:

Interesting. Somewhat cumbersome to use (at least with Google chrome), and a lot of listed parts end up with NLA results. What I found most interesting is if you check for reproduced parts only, the only things that have been reproduced are the fuel tank, pump and "shield." I'm trying to get my head around that. Dirty fuel tanks? Leaks? Accident damage and people trying to salvage cars to rebuild from the boneyard?
