I live in Melbourne, Australia and I just bought a beautiful car and need general advice and some parts/missing accessories that I want.

I cannot seem to find any of the parts I actually need and want on eBay or anywhere else?

Hopefully someone can help.

Thanks

Craig

Thank you everyone for making me feel so welcome! I really was not expecting that, so thank you!!!

At the moment I am struggling to find a Bluetooth Adapter for my car. I cannot seem to validate a part number. I am searching the internet and eBay and cant seem to establish exactly what i need.

What i am trying to do/determine is what to do about connecting my iPhone x to the car for multiple reasons/functionality. Firstly I was considering using the in-car Bluetooth connectivity.. i have the UHI connection, but not the Bluetooth adapter. It would be really handy to be able to be able to answer and dial calls using the cars system, and not have to get a separate system, like Parrot etc.

I was also wanting to see if that also gave me the ability to play music through the car radio audio system from my phone....

So that is the biggest dilemma I have right now, basically trying to figure out what the best and less expensive way is to get my car to talk to my phone, and allow me to take and receive calls and play music from my phone, through the cars audio system.

Where do we start?

Thanks

Craig

Thanks Jeff!!!

I am also looking for an original rubber boot lining. I have only seen it in a picture and cannot find it at all as a part.

As for the original fitted rubber boot liner I know they were listed in some M-B brochures but they must be rare.

I can’t imagine more than a tiny number came to Australia. Chances of seeing one on ebay are not good. If there was one in US,UK, or EU postage would be not insignificant.

For parts Try M.B Spares in ACT for help, M-F only.

Very hard to find any cars at wreckers here that are not already stripped bare.
M-B wreckers in Maddox Rd North Williamstown have a R171 !
