I need to replace the door seals on both doors and am looking for good quality repro parts as the genuine ones would seem to be a bit too pricey.
I found a listing from SLS in Germany which seem not too bad for price but wondered if anyone knew what they were like or if they're no good does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks for the feedback on SLS, they seem to have a good range of parts available and if the quality is good so much the better.

Don't be afraid of giving the MB classic center a call. If you're a member of the MBCA you get a 15% discount. With discount the door seal price I think is around $115.00 and they were a perfect fit.

Also give Germanstar a try.

Checked out Germanstar and their prices are quite keen but I suspect that would possibly be negated after the addition of shipping to the UK but I'll get a quote from them and see.

I am just curious what is the price of the URO door seals?
Is it really so much cheaper than the original MB Germany price of around 80 euros, 67 euros after discount?

Hallo Renato, that's the same price you pay at MB Germany without MB Member Discount (15%).
usually MB parts are much cheaper in the US.

Judy, checked also MBZDiscountparts and, although on sale, were still a few bucks more expensive than the ones at Autohaus. I imagine they must be OEM parts and since they are different part # than a regular SL - US model, and probably not many aftermarket companies make them.

Funny, at the moment SLS GmbH can not supply any MB spare parts for MY 1986 560SL...they have been excellent supplier many years without any difficulties.
