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 are starting with the W124 series and we expect to branch out from there.
Although our focus for this business is on the W124 series (informally, the E-series made from 1985 to 1996) we can also help with used parts for earlier or later cars. Please feel free to ask.
