    All 500E's came with burled walnut wood. What wood are you looking for? The piece around the shifter and window switches? New will be $300-$400 (approx), or you can have your existing wood refinished by Madera for a little less. Used pieces are probably half that much depending on condition.

    To the best of my knowledge, there was only ONE kind of wood available stock from the factory on the US-spec 500E/E500, and that is burled walnut.

    The never-available-in-the-US E500 Limited had a special birds-eye maple wood, generally fairly dark in color.

    Pedestrian (non-V8, non-coupe and non-convertible) W124s generally had regular Zebrano wood. I believe in Europe one could special-order Zebrano wood on a 500E/E500, and special-order burl walnut on a 4-, 6-cylinder or hack*diesel*cough W124.
