Let's see how good you guys really are? Need a R170 burl finish ashtray door or if necessary the complete cubby storage ashtray and coin holder. Sorry not $800 for a new one, more like $100 pre-owned not broken. The only one on ebay is $139 broken and don't respond to offers. Most ads and links from pictures are old ebay or over and done.

Any idea why the storage cubby has a layer of metal between the bottom plastic wood layer and the top layer? I'm thinking it was from a previous model that would be good to know, but a fraction of an inch too short and they had to build it up to level with the rest of the trim. What's the real story? Same kinda story with the rear bumper having a layer of metal foil between plastic layers?

Robert try the following

https://europeanautorecycling.com/

Four pages of R170 parts pictured no ashtray.

Audi, Land Rover, Mercedes and VW Used Parts | Luxury Auto Dismantling

One possibility there is a picture of what could be the ashtray door laying face down on the console, likely broken off. Have to call and ask about it. Update: Called and was told those are pictures taken when the car came in, they have been taking parts off them ever since. Said they would go look and get back to me, nothing for 24 hours.

Vague wants to send vague specific model year request to hundreds of used parts sellers.

Vague no pictures closest is Console $150 no color not an MB part #

of course the is always the Mb Classic Center in Irvine but they are a bit pricey.:wink:
No specific parts and ebay store no longer exists, had to provide Vin and description of part. Wait and see. Update so far no reply.

Thanks RobertP

GOT IT !!! Finally found a seller on ebay selling a mostly complete burl trim set for $295 or best offer and made a $129 offer just for the ashtray coin holder storage cubby and got a bite. What arrived looks like new, now I have to install it without breaking anything else.
