I have up for sale an EXC- condition center console piece for a "pedestrian" W124 model. This was removed from a 1995 E320 sedan. There are no blemishes on this wood and it retains its original perfect shine.
I'll be very very realistic here, and describe the worst-case scenario: I'd have to put up against a new piece, but given the age of it there is undoubtedly some slight color fading on the piece, but for a stock piece this shows very very very little fading. Color is even across the entire piece.
I would not hesitate for one second to install this piece in any applicable car, even a show car.
No cracks or other surface blemishes. Note the hole pattern at the top, so if your car is different you may need to re-arrange your switches to match this hole pattern if it's not a direct fit.
Price for this wood is $50, postpaid via US Priority Mail anywhere in the US. A new piece from MB is likely to be in the $400 range.
Thanks for your interest. PM me if interested.
