    Breakers will seldom take them off as they sell the doors complete.

    You can get them from MB

    I think it is amazingly clean, but feel that it would be more comfortable if it had some tyres on it

    It's a hydraulic suspension. Next week I am having my power folding / blinking mirrors installed :bannana:. As far as the ride quality, it is actually much nicer than stock because of the hydraulics; I am running something called accumulators which my allows me to utilize 10 inches in front and 12 inches in the rear of complete travel within the suspension.

    My local dealership here in Orange County, CA is not very helping in my search for some, as are breakers as you have mentioned. I know that the availability on parts such as these are much more common in Europe, hence why I asked you. :eek:

    The reason why I need W210 ones is because no W202 ever came with painted handles (in America, anyway), and my colour was not used on the facelifted W210 model.

    Thanks for the link by the way!

    Hey nice whip! Guess that colour hides the OC dust well. I'm in Fullerton!

    You tried... Duval Motors?

    Front Handles $42.90 each

    Rear Handles $31.20 each

    P&P is $8ish, they're a bit slow on the delivery but cheap, make sure you give them ther colour code you want as the site specifies colours but just to check if they can do the one you want!

    Btw are you a brit/yank/expat? I ask because you spelt 'colour' the right way :D

    Thanks for the links! Are far as being a Brit, I am not. I just did not want to seem to like a stereotypical American idiot ;)

    Those two for the front door handles you will have to get painted from a bodyshop I guess. Are the blinking mirrors the W210 ones aswell ?

    I don't think you get them Stateside, but that's exactly the suspension that Citroen cars use for all their medium and upper ranges.

    Works very well.

    Does yours settle down or does it have an anti sink valve, and how long are the suspension spheres designed to last?

    It would be interesting to see pics of how the rams mount into the suspension componets.
