Thanks drbrandini, I'll see if Phil at PartsShop can get the vinyl cording from Mercedes.
WRM, Gahh's web site was easy to find, thanks for the tip. It looks like they know their stuff and the pricing is comparable ($100).
Gahh Web Site
Have you (or anyone) ever ordered an armrest cover from them? My cover is a very tight fit with a two-piece plastic clip sewn into the rear of the cover (half on top and half on bottom) that attaches for a neat appearance after the cover is on.
I'm wondering if an aftermarket manufacturer duplicates that with good results?
I don't mean to be overly skeptical, but I just got burned on an aftermarket speedo cable.
