I have been led to believe that there are common parts between the W124 E500 and the SL500 R129...
I live in Oman and getting parts is a nightmare. When I go to the Mercedes breakers yard there are never any E500's there (I think I own the only one left in Oman!) There are however always a couple of R129's that have been stripped down. When I ask for the various parts off it the guy says they wont fit! Not sure if he's being an awkward git......
Has anyone got a list of the parts that are common to both cars?
Can I just use the principle that if the part number begins with 129 then it will fit my E500?
Has any one got a link to a site which catalogs all the parts for the E500 with their part numbers? It would save a lot of hassle if I had this information.
