Piecha Products (how to buy in US)?

Are there any Piecha distributors in US? How good are their products? Are things like their windscreen and roof module good quality or are there better products out there?

Yeah, probably cheaper to get those things from other places in the US. For other bits that are unique to Piecha, I know that forum user "Stinger" has ordered from them in the past. You might send him a PM to see what his experience was.

I have the Piecha black hood fins on my SLK350. I ordered them by emailing them directly and receiving a PayPal invoice. I consider this product to be good quality but the main reason was it was unique and different from the rest. Though many years later the black hood fins are fading a little bit-probably a beating from the weather. Maybe I should've waxed them more often, I don't know. They still look good though.

Piecha Products (how to buy in US)

It seems that their products are pretty popular in Europe, but do not have a big base here in US at all (other than some folks having some body trim here and there).
They do seem to have some nice stuff for the SLK - the roof module, actual glass windscreen, a shorty antenna with a built in amplifier, and a few other items.
Was wondering if anybody had good experience with their quality. Seems like if somebody was looking for all these things ( a newbe) it may be a good place just to get it all from one manufacturer (if the quality is high). Their glass windscreen looks nice and pretty classy.

Quality - good. Service - good. Prices - high. My experience with them has been basically good. If you buy from them, deal with Patrick.

But, some of the items that you want can be purchased here domestically, as good or better quality at better prices. Check out our forum sponsors. SLKStore for the smart top module and shorty antenna, Windristrictor for the windscreen. SLKStore might have windscreen as well.

I got Piecha parts from formymercedes.com. They order from Germany often and as a result you save a fortune on shipping. When I wanted to replace my roll bars with St/St I looked into direct purchse and the shipping was as much as the parts. When I ordered from formymercedes.com, I paid far less in shipping for the same product.

I beg to differ with you. I am not bashing formymercedes.com in the least, they are a very good source for products. But the OP asks where he can get "Piecha" parts and there is nothing offered by formymercedes.com that is "branded" Piecha.

That's not to say that some things like roll bars may not be the same as some things very well may be sourced from the same manufacturer. But, they do not offer any Proprietary Piecha goods.

To answer the question, there is not domestic Piecha distributor here in the USA. If you want Piecha's "signature" product, you can purchase from them directly, from Chorme-tec in Germany and I believe that CKSPerformance in the UK may carry a few sku's as well.

Jerry at ForMymercedes.com purchased piecha made roll bars for my slk through crome-tec. So I guess he did not buy direct. But I have the Piecha roll bars and saved a fortune on shipping. Jerry will tell you if he cant get what you need but it is worth a shot. Also, I ordered the front end chrome strips for grill. The ad showed 2 pieces, rt and left. But I received a third for the lower middle piece. Same price

Patrick at Chrome-tec is a great guy! Good service and very responsive. I have spent a few thousand dollars with him on Piecha products. Right now he is working up some numbers on another project that I am thinking of (uncatalogued). But I have to say that sometimes his prices can be high. I always WANT to give him my business because I like him, but often his prices are far from competitive.

The third chrome "bumper" cover is a Mercedes Benz product. You probably provided them with your VIN number and the ordered the part for you directly from Mercedes Benz. That is good, it means that they are selling the "good" stuff whenever they can.
