Woops - replied from the first page, only to discover that I'd been beaten to it.

Well, I got done like a chicken dinner, haven't I ? Those prices are excellent, and certainly cheaper that my 'special deal' and certainly a lot cheaper than Eris Car Design in Germany. Both the horn pad and the console trinket box look excellent value for money.

All one needs to do now is to find out how long for delivery and cost of postage - matters not to be under-estimated in the overall scheme of things. Regards, Styria

Looks like they've been torpedoed again.

The link is no longer valid.

If I remember correctly there was a lot of bad comment on the M-100 site, bascially revealing them as crooks. I could be wrong so don't sue me!!

There is a site called www.newbenzwood.com. Avoid at all costs. I bought 5 sets of front subframe mounts off them, 4 to be sent Aust. 1 to the UK. they never sent the set to the UK and stopped responding to emails.

Not sure if they are in any way connected to benzwood.com, but it seems pretty close to me!

I couldn't agree with you more, and I do have the pleasure of a near-mint 280S!

On the topic of standard size steering wheels, I saw some pics on the net of a "6.9" where the owner had fitted a white wheel from a W108/109. Very smart it looked too.

Last year I wanted to fit a Nardi to Lady Genevieve until I discovered the hub I'd bought was for the later steering column and the Nardi is 2" smaller in diameter thus obscuring part of the instrument panel.

The wood and leather look is very beautiful though.
