I am in need of trim parts and am considering my options...

- Rear wiper cover 1637470087
- Cup holder cover 1636830210

I have found a wreck, but the parts are already taken. The dealer here will import them but takes 3 days to quote and delivery is 2 weeks (they say!)

Is there a site anyone can recommend as an option? Hold out for another wreck? Is this something US / EU / UK dealers may stock - I can have a friend buy and post to me...

usually, customs duty [in Africa, India, etc.] on imported car parts is more than 100%. For example, in India, one gallon (4 one-Liter bottles) of coolant costs $100 at MB dealer in India. Not kidding !!

I used your part numbers and the online catalog doesn't know these numbers.
The wiper cover is $2.10 from the dealer here in the USA and I cant imagine that you couldn't find this part (and the other) from a dealer in SA. Just pay the excise tax and get over with it.

Wolf, those numbers are good, they are for European models.

OK, got the word back form the dealer...
- Rear wiper cover 1637470087 ZAR 291
- Cup holder cover 1636830210 ZAR 359

So a cool $65... I am likely to hold out a bit to see if a wreck crops up, or extend my search range.

Interestingly the 2nd part had never been ordered in this country before, so I am likely to find a 2nd hand one if I find a wreck.

I checked with the Post Office and they want $38.95 for 1 pound package to SA. If you have a friend in the USA ship it to you you come close to the 65 bucks for the parts and I think the same applies to shipment from Europe.
