    Looking at buying flexi donut for the CLK 320 2003.

    Euro Car Parts says it fits the front and back???

    Does that mean I need 2 to do a full "refurb"?

    Thanks

    If you are buying on the interwebnet, there is a good chance they will send you the cheapo ones even though you have paid for the better ones !

    They have done that to me a few times now. One even came with the bag ripped open and two bolts missing !!!:wallbash:

    I had to replace the rear Donut on my C55. ECP got it direct from FEBI in Germany. It arrived in a FEBI labelled box and with FEBI branded on the DONUT. Made a massive difference to my ride.

    If unsure then speak to Pat at ECP via the forum. YOu can get him on the "How Much does this cost"thread. PM him. He always responds and will help.

    Thanks Bruce (and everyone else).

    Would you replace both or just 1?

    Really depends on the wear. On mine the rear was visibly shot. The front looked ok. You can see them in situ without any dismantling.
