W202 C43 AMG Parts wanted!!!

Post by NAILUJ311 » Wed 14 Feb, 2018 2:51 pm

HI there
My name is Julian & i am new to the OZ Benz Forum
I am currently buliding a W202 C55 AMG wagon
I have bought a stat write CLK 55 208 which i have taken all the running gear,suspension off & put onto my W202 C240 station wagon
I am making this into a C55 wagon
What i need is the complete C43 interior (front seats,Rear folding seats & door trims)
Complete AMG bodykit (Front and Rear Bars & side skirts
I know finding these parts in Australia is going to be real hard as not many C43s were delivered
Thats why i have joined the forum to ask any members if they know of any C43s getting wrecked or know of anyone who has these parts i need
I can get the interior from the USA,but postage is a killer
If anyone out there who could help me out,it would be much appreciated.
I hope someone can
Cheers & thanks for your time
Also i have a heap of CLK 55 AMG 208 parts that i need to get rid off asap
let me know what you need

Hi Julian,
that's a task! C43s weren't sold a lot, so even here in Germany it would be difficult (there's no damaged W202 C43 on the market at the moment). Although it's your car, why don't you let the outside like a C240 and just put the motor in? A real sleeper ... if you like, I can get a "C200" badge for you :laughing6:

Regards
Thomas

I think any 202 AMG will be sufficient to provide interior and if the vehicle is at a wrecker, these bits go quick and cost BIG $$$$

I think you're between a rock and a hard place - not impossible, but it honestly doesn't look easy.

Bodykit can be purchased new genuine - call the forum sponsor.
Yes, it will be expensive, but it won't be as bad as you think, especially compared to a used one from the wrecker.

Interior - well all I can say is you need a copy of the MB EPC, and you need to get REALLY familiar with it. Or get on very friendly terms with your local stealership service manager.
In many cases parts from OS will be LHD specific - and yes, that includes interior parts - seats.... etc.

I can give you an example where in the 201.034, the centre console shell is different for LHD & RHD - and you would strugle to notice, but they won't fit each other's dash respectively!

Hence the recommendation to get onto the EPC - the EPC is free to all financial members of an official Mercedes-Benz Club. Or you can download the .iso files online and have fun trying to install it on a virtual machine on your computer - or a dedicated computer....

Sounds like an interesting project - perhaps start a thread in the w202 section or the mod squad section and post up some pics!
