I would like to know if there is an online resource similar to RealOEM for BMW's for the Mercedes-Benz. I am looking for the mast antenna which I believe has something to do with the SOS function in the car. The black cover on ours is broken, I think it probably got hit too hard by the wash brush one too many times.

Thanks in advance,
Rick

Hi Rick and welcome!

I think you might be looking for the E(lectronic) P(arts) C(atalog), available free for North Americans at http://epc.startekinfo.com/epc/welcome.jsp Yes, it asks for a credit card, but only to track location somehow (so the rest of the world can't get in on the scam?).

Exactly: Your credit card address is verified, and from that MBUSA can tell that you actually do live in the USA. (Or at least your card does!)

I was told that MBUSA only has permission to service MBs in the USA market, which makes sense.

In the European Union, you can get a lifetime EPC subscription for about 12 Euro. Or it seemed like lifetime to me; not being in the EU I can't tell.
