    eurocarparts ?

    gsfcarparts? - just noticed you have to register now to use this company and give them email address and phone numbers before you can search for parts! Good way to turn business away IMHO

    There was a guy breaking a CLK430 on here in the classifieds the other week :)

    Or failing that, you could try sending a message to forum member 'Howard', as I know he fitted an AMG exhaust to his 430 a while back - he might have kept the old exhaust (?)

    Other than that, I guess there's a number of aftermarket options available?

    Tried GSF and they cannot help me due to my car being a 1999 W208 model and they only keep parts for 10yrs

    I've got a 430 backbox as Will says.

    In good condition , with the black ( avantgarde ) tailpipe trim in place.

    I'm right at Jcn 1 of the M3.

    Cool, My CLK 430 is Avantgarde, but my tail pipe had a chrome tailpipe piece. How much do you want? I have been in touch with a MB dealer and I have to buy the system from the cats onwards.

    You'll need to get it welded onto your old system or get a sleeve , as it was cut off with a disc cutter to fit the AMG backbox. It was cut neatly though , don't worry. ;)

    £75 and it's yours.

    I'll take a picture tomorrow and post it up.

    Howard, sorry didn't get back been busy. I would so love to buy just the back box but I had my car checked and the the whole section from the cats needs replacing. So it looks like I'm going to have to fork out on a new system from cats to tail pipe :mad:

    For that money you may be better getting stainless steel.
