Whoa, hold your horses... I didn't buy the highest priced items ($500s & $400s) yet... mine are actually still in fair shape for its age... as for the rest, I did (with a nice discount).

And did you mean 123-720-01-54 LONG W/STRIP (Left) and 123-720-02-54 LONG W/STRIP (Right)? I don't need new ones for now...

even without the 400 and 500 seals, thats alot of money. I want to replace all the rubbers on my car but I can't afford to do all of them.

I just rebuilt the front end with Pierre on Saturday morning. Thats what we were doing when you called him.

Geepers Mr. Wilson, you could get a complete car for all that rubber.

I guess the 300CD deserves it after all... I hear you loud & clear on the coupe prices... but sooner or later, to keep a car rust-free - these important & often neglected rubber seals MUST be replaced.

Oh yes Paolo... like night & day... if you have a sedan (or even a S123) then be glad because the rubbers are a heck of a lot less, cost-wise.

Thank God the guy who gave me my parts coupe had it covered. Most of the seals were like new. Now I am just waiting to paint the car before they go on. I don't think I could ever by them new. Why are the front and rear window seals soo much. My cost for MBZ rears is $103.12 and the front is $92.06. Your prices were full list price. Oh, keep an eye on the rubber quality. My rear window rubber split after 3 months. Now I am stuck with paying a guy to come out and remove it and put another one on. They won't warranty labor.

The sedan MB seal for the front windshield is $120, got one when I replaced the glass on mine.

I don't want to know how much the door seals are, I need to replace them soon, but being in CA it won't matter much.

Wait Pat... you sure? ADSITCO has them priced differently, but I'm not sure if Adsitco carries OEM or repros??

Tell me about it...

I also got orig MB engine mounts for mine, $70 for the pair. Meyle and the like were around $15-20 each. Heard bad stuff about aftermarket rubber items. So the transmission and differential mount I'll get in the future will come from MB.

I have never had problems with after market mounts. And I cant count how many I have put on. The only rubber I would stay away from is the vacuum connectors. And old MBZ stock like my rear coupe window seal. If they made and after market one I would have bought it. At least I know that it hasn't been sitting on a shelf for years. Are those things still in production? I think its all old stock.

Must be hit or miss... my rule of thumb is nothing wrong with MB OEM... but on that note, these new seals looks/feels fresh so I hope it holds up for many years down the road... at least here in sunny Florida, it'll be away from the harsh cold elements and the coupe was and will always be garaged anyway.
