I got these from a guy called Ralf in Germany. I also bought an avantgarde grill, chrome heater vent covers, chrome rings for the heater dials, chrome gear lever surround and a chrome strip for the grab handle on the boot.
All in all, it took 9 days for the items to reach me.
His site can be found here:-Mod part link

Jon,
I sent him an email asking about the dials. He has MSN messenger if you have it. His user name is :- matrixcar@msn.com

I think the dials were 80 euros for the set of three plus shipping.
The picture you see is after they were fitted. I was going to do a step by step picture guide, but being an impatient sod, I wanted to get them in as quick as poss.

They were quite easy to fit. Pop out the clock console, take off the front plastic bit, carefully remove the needles with a screwdriver, peel off old crappy guages and fit the new ones.
The bit that took the time was setting the needles back up, but whole job from start to finish took me an hour. You have to find a positive feed from the ignition for them to light up.

Got price wrong earlier. Is 80 euros. Have edited it above.
He is currently out of stock for w202 models, but has w124, w140 and w210 models in stock.

Jon,
There is no link on there as he has only just started selling them. According to him, I am the only one in the UK to have bought them from him. As he said " I can't get enough". Here's some pics taken in daylight.

Hi Pluggers.
Yes. The needles light up when you turn the lights on. Forgot to turn them on when i took pic.:crazy:

Cant find a source for the heater controls yet, but working on it.;)
Fitted the avantgarde grill yesterday, makes it look like a different car. :rock: :rock:

C180's dont have 160MPH on the clock so it looks to me as your speedo will always be out?

80MPH shows dead centre on your new guages but 80 on the old guages is slightly to the right snt it? it gets worse after 110MPH dont it?

Spot on K. It's not much to worry about though.
Had missus in porsche behind me testing the speeds.
Is about 7mph out.
At least now if it shows 70 mph, I know I wont get knicked for speeding.:D

Lots of Mercedes!
Thought id just mention: to take the needles off, use a teaspoon not a screwdriver. Just put it under the needle and press down, this will pop the needle off without damaging the clock or the needle....

Ive done a few KMH-MPH conversions!...
