Hi

Can anyone help me as to where to source a replacement driver side front wing or is this a 'go to your local dealer' option only?

This is doing my head in. Surely I cannot be the only person in the UK who needs or has need to replace a front wing on their beloved SLK?

No, sorry guys, was not able to source anything in the UK and ended up having to order from MB directly. Had it fitted and painted by a specialist which save me almost £500 on the dealer quote which was just over £1000.

Not the part that was expensive but the paint job as my car is blue metalic which appears to have to have special treatment. lol

Thanks for getting back, shame there aren't any R171 wings about, plenty of R170 and R172!

Here's one, fender left Mercedes Benz SLK R171 A1718800106 | eBay

But if I see what they charge for it and the condition it is in, I quote:
“used original sparepart; The fender is bent in several places and has scratches and paint damage on.”
I wouldn't bother.
You can get a brand new one for € 274.70. P&P not included ofcourse.
Also be aware there are 2 different versions before and after chassisnr F081916.

Just received price from Mercedes to supply only for £217 plus the VAT, within a couple of days.
So not too unrealistic.
