After "lusting" for a Mercedes Sports Car for many years, I finally broke down and bought myself a 2001 Slk 320 Sport that is in perfect condition.

I've had this Black SLK for nearly a year - it took me until today to remember that I have already signed up for this forum.

Fortunately, I live in the Phoenix, AZ area, so there are plenty of days to drive the car with the top down.

And I just recently retired - so now I have even more time to clean, wax, and drive this great car.

I do have a quick question for any 2001 SLK 320 Sport owners out there.

Recently, one of the lower grill inserts either fell out (or was stolen).

As I have checked around for a replacement, the quotes I have been receiving have been in the $120.00 to $160.00 range.

And that's for a piece of plastic screen approximately 10 inches by 4 inches.

I have owned an earlier 1995 E-320 so I understand that Benz parts are more expensive - but this seems ridiculous.

The same insert for the non-sport version is quoted at less than $20.00.

Any thoughts are where I might find this part at a more reasonable cost?

Welcome from MN! Here we'll be enjoying top down driving for a couple more months before it's 6 months of winter once again.
