    Gav, the owner isn't going to beat his own drum, so I'll do it for him.
    If you have read my thread about my electrical woes, you'd see I needed a new alternator.

    EBay had a new one for £235 and there was a recon one for £130 which went up in price overnight to £170 after I'd been watching it:wallbash:

    Knowing Gav (merc85) had a parts business I thought I'd give him my business, especially when he gave me a really good price on a new Bosch unit.
    The service I received was brilliant and its just turned up 48hrs after being ordered. He is now my go to guy for any parts I need in future, such is the service.
    If you need anything for your car, give him a call and put some business his way.

    Thankyou Sir, We really appreciate the business, I will always try and do the best price and delivery for Forum member's.

    We are only a very small Motor Factors in Harwich but sometimes we can achieve some good prices, always worth a Pm if stuck.
    Were not currently a Forum Sponsor as we are only a very small concern, hence why i don't pursue on here.

    All the best Gav /merc85

    Yes we do Sir, As we are a independent there are Suppliers in addition to those on the website we can use to source more specialist parts.
    The Site is run through a 3rd Party and does not have a postage option but this can be done by giving us a call or Pm myself on here with any inquiry you or anyone else may have I always reply.

    The prices on the website are regularly checked by our 3rd party to keep them inline with larger Retailers, But sometime's i can adjust these if there enough room within and will always do my best price for Mbclub forum members.

    I'm not going to add anymore as i don't want to breach any Forum rules, I Appreciate this Forum and its members as i'm a avid Enthusiast of all things Mercedes and i don't want to loose a reliable resource nor friends.

    All the Best, Gav/merc85

    Unfortunately you would only be able to use a Genuine Mb replacement on your existing Set up if it is OE.

    For Genuine Mercedes Replacement Parts, i've personally used Waterhouse Mercedes Chelmsford 01245 610000

    Ok thank you. I’m after a second hand one. Went to my local merc dealership and they wanted £500+ vat and they wasn’t sure if it was the complete unit and may also need the ball for the top another £500. He double checked with manager and even he was shocked as you can have a whole towbar u it fitted for £1k. Hence why I’m searching everywhere atm
