Hi guys

I rang up the parts department at my local MB dealer to enquire about the price for part number A171 680 61 71, for a R171. Its the plastic silver trim pieces on either side of the steering wheel and above the glove box. I just needed the one on the right hand side of the steering wheel to replace a slightly scratched one that I have. Was quoted around $200 dollars Australian....thinking that's a bit of a rip off for 3 pieces of plastic!!

I'm heading to NYC in a couple of weeks, anyone over there can possibly see if its cheaper in US?

dangit..mbspares came back with quote of $195 as well..with freight cost of 18....

Trademotion has it for US165.....can't believe it, for a small piece of plastic(actually, trademotion lists it as "Drivers side aluminum left", but its definitely not metal!)

Cyberdrakon (Eddie) has my original trim pieces (replaced w/ carbon fiber), PM him and see if he is willing to sell it to you.

Sorry, i already butchered the ones i got from you AND my own...:mad: :(

I'm trying to get more right as well and have been following this thread. Hopefully someone else who has upgraded has the pieces for sale.

For what's it worth I ordered the right side aluminium piece and got a carbon fiber one. This was 2 years ago. The part numbers matched so the description may be wrong in the parts catalog.

I hope you kept it because it's $$$.
