Looking for a Mercedes parts/ accessory source

Way back when, I somehow wound up on the mailing list for Automotionís Mercedes catalog in addition to their Porsche Catalog. Obviously paper catalogs are a thing of the past now as is Automation but there must must be an online equivalent. Iíve looked briefly through the offerings from Pelican but Iím looking for more.

My girlfriend and I just bought a 2001 320 SLK. Super low miles, and extremely clean except for a heavily scratch interior. That, I should be able to redye/ repaint. She wants to accessorize the car to make it unique. Looking for something slightly better than isle 7 at the local FLAPS or JC Whitney.

First changes that must be made right away: need Bluetooth and Sirius XM. There is an antenna on the rear lid, must mean it’s wired for satellite; right?

Yeah, pretty bad. The site you are on sells a vast array of parts for all modern MB vehicles. If they donít suit your needs for some reason, search the web. The web is large. Asking on their site is rude.

Pelican is my first source. I've searched for a few things that they do not have so I was looking for something in addition to Pelican's offerings. I've been searching the internet as well and have not had much luck.

All you have to do is call Pelican's phone. They will find what they can and add trends to the database. If you ran a parts website can you imagine having every bit and piece up on the site? Pelican combines over 75 vendors on one site.

That was then when I was working there. Could be 175 by now.

That assumes I know exactly what I want. A repair part. A known accessory. I am looking for ideas, something unique. I’m looking for things to customize the car. I’m looking for photos of those ideas. Pelican doesn’t have that.
