About a month ago I enquired with MB Taunton as to the price of a bumper chrome for my W126 560. I was told it was about £60 plus VAT. Rang today to order same part, was told UK out of stock, Germany out of stock and MB Heritage (whoever they are) also out of stock. In any event, the price was now £128! Went away miffed, then the parts guy rang me back to tell me Gerrard Mann had one showing in stock (unusually helpful, but MB Taunton do seem to be very helpful). Part now winging it's way to me at the higher price. Wondering if the price goes up as soon as the stock dries up, or whether it was just a massive price increase. Can't imagine MB are stopping making or selling these chromes.
