For your 1973-1980 W116 Mercedes-Benz (whether a 450 SEL or otherwise) you can now buy used OEM (OEM = Original Equipment [of the] Manufacturer) parts at (in many cases) an even cheaper price than aftermarket parts. Get the genuine part at a fraction of the cost! Plus, our used parts are guaranteed. We trust Mercedes-Benz quality, whether the part is used or new.
We spend a lot of time working with these cars, so our high opinion is based on wrench-in-hand experience, as well as driving and owning these cars.
We offer a wide variety of used parts for this series, though we don’t offer everything, and some items we might not have in stock, especially for the 6.9. That said, please ask. We might well have a high-quality used part for you, and even if we don’t, we might well be able to find one quickly enough.
