They will probably cost more than you would expect, plus they will need to be painted as well. Therefore not sure it makes perfect sense to put them on if they are not an original element to that car anyway and they might have been lost or broken and now you need to re-fit them to keep the car in factory spec shape. A friend of mine tried to 3d print a pair of these to put them on his final edition but after all they did not really look like the "real thing" and he abandoned the idea.

I requested for a price quote from MB Singapore yesterday :wink ... hopefully "affordable" and I'm also comfortable having them painted to Brilliant Silver

Nothing finer...than a one twenty niner!
Except having 2!
Red is 1998
Blackie is 2002
I wanted the last year engine (M119) before Chrysler's involvement and wanted the last year (2002) of the R129's.
Both have less than 60K miles.
No major issues.....so far!

RE: Picture thread of our lovely 129's



Dallas,

The car came like this. The leather is called Helios -option 239. Paint is brilliant silver metallic and the soft top is dark blue - option 744.

Also no aftermarket mods in any other areas.


Any pictures of yours?


Regards
Sisu

Just purchased this 1994 sl 320 with 54,000 miles all original. Lovin life but wary of what I'm reading about wire harnesses and top problems. What would be an indicator of the wiring harness going bad?

Cheers!

The "nearest" results I could fine, someone was asking years ago Re: the same wheels that you have, https://www.benzworld.org/threads/splitting-bbs-amg-2-piece-for-painting.2510753/ Unfortunately that is all I see buddy, sorry, hopefully someone else will chime in soon. Great wheels, one of my all time favorites!

EDIT: Found this info from Black Forrest Industries, https://blackforestindustries.com/products/m8x32-assembly-bolt-nut-for-2-piece-bbs-style-5-style-19-amg-aero-ii-wheels Since they do supply the hardware to all the fine wheels, you may want to get in touch with the directly for confirmation on the torque specs, but for 19" on this page Torque spec: 36N*m is what's listed...
