    Hi all,

    I've just bought a 1997 R129 SL500 and it's missing the wind deflector.

    I just wondered if anyone has one for sale?

    There are a few on Ebay...one made by ORIS (is this Original manufacturer?)

    Let me know if you have one...and would love a grey boot cover for this as well!

    Thanks

    Ian

    eBay is probably going to be the best option for the deflector - mine came from there.

    I got the cover panel via a dealership, it had to be ordered from Germany but wasn't outrageously expensive (I can look it up if you like). I've never seen one for sale, they come in different colours anyway so you'd have to be incredibly lucky to find a s/h one.

    It does annoy me when people flog off standard kit from cars before selling them.

    The guy I got my AMG 3pcs from was thinking about selling the hardtop from his SL320 separately...pointed out to him that unless it was a pano roof it would hurt the value much more than he'd make from selling it.

    ORIS are the original equipment manufacturer. Ebay is your best bet, they come up for sale all the time.

    I bought a brand new one on there for £180 about 18 months ago.
