This may not be what you are looking for because it is an on-line parts

Check out Rusty at www.buymbparts.com

It is mainly a MB shop, but he has parts for all European cars.

His prices are about the best you will find anywhere. I don't stock with
the company, just a very happy customer. I learned about him when I had
my MB 190D 2.5.
