    Has anybody any experience of buying front wings for this model? I'm wanting to replace both mine over the winter and wondered if anybody had good/bad/indifferent experiences with pattern ones. There's various ones around but the guy who'll be fitting and painting them warned me that a bad copy wing is a nightmare to fit and will never fit properly.
    Any help or known good suppliers would be greatly appreciated

    You'll be better buying genuine rust free ones and yes your guy is right

    That there will be no genuine original quality MB wings now only second hand ones. Even genuine new MB ones will now probably be batch produced by third parties albeit to certain inspection standards. So pattern parts will vary in quality from almost as good as the original to downright awful. the problem with second hand"original quality" ones they almost always suffer from rust to a certain extent ranging in condition from cosmetic to terminal.
