I have been a Mercedes-Benz enthusiast ever since my early teens. Right around that age, I got a free subscription to “Friends of the Three Pointed Star,” the Mercedes-Benz magazine.
As soon as it arrived, I read the magazine cover to cover.
Our neighbors had a 1973 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE. I read everything I could find about these cars. One day, I got to ride in it. I enjoyed the combination of the experience plus the insights, based on what I had read.
Fast forward to the year 2003, when I founded a formal corporation focused on used auto parts. I intended to focus on a few select brands, including Mercedes-Benz, though we started with BMW parts.
In 2007, my car company started focusing on Mercedes-Benz too, though we were not selling parts as yet. We bought a Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC and started getting acquainted with it. Later that year, I flew to Europe, bought a Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC (a picture of the actual car is shown above; lovely AMG rims) and drove it (at some point, at 138 mph) on the German autobahn to the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart.
Today, I own three Mercedes-Benz vehicles for my personal transportation, and if my finances and parking enabled me to own more yet, I would.
And finally, in 2013, we are now offering not just used BMW parts but also used good, guaranteed Mercedes-Benz parts. We started with the W124 series and the R129 series and we branched out from there.
Although our focus for this business is on the R129 series (informally, the SL made from 1990 to 2002) we can also help with used parts for earlier or later cars. Please feel free to ask.
