    I want to buy all new ignition parts for my '75 280ce, where's the best place to get them? Mercedes?

    My local motor factor is having troublefinding some parts (a ballast resistor for example) and cant find a distributor cap for less than £60 so i'm looking for other options.

    Lots of Mercedes!
    You will be pleasantly surprised by the MB prices, I would chack first before hunting around for pattern parts.

    I've got a 74 280E which is no longer on the road. I'll see what bits I've taken off it and stored in my garage. Unfortunately the rest of the car is not convenient for me to get to at the minute.

    Hi, I've only got a set of plug leads in the garage. I might be able to get to the car this weekend but I'll have to check that the place will be open.
