    Hi Guys,

    Recently purchased an S210 430 Wagon that's unsurprisingly in need of two front wings (plus doors/tailgate/bonnet but they can wait!). Where is the best place to but them??

    I've seen a few on eBay for £70/80 per side but unsure if there a good fit etc or whether to go for genuine MB ones??

    Anybody got any experience good or bad??

    Thanks

    Tom

    @renault12ts bought some in the past from Euro Car Parts 'premium' ones and they were good quality and fit IIRC. Decent 2nd hand ones are like hen's teeth (I sold mine easily) and are usually expensive because of this

    I've got 2 new LCAs if you're doing a proper job on it.

    Before spending money on the car it would be wise to check very thoroughly for serious structural problems lurking out of sight.

    An S210 isn't worth a great deal these days and if the wings, doors, bonnet and tailgate are all rotten then the initial signs aren't good.

    Lower Control Arms? or bottom Transverse Control Arms in MB speak.
