Hood Star Question

On Performance Products it lets me order a hood star for an 84 Mercedes 300SD but when i try and order one for my 84 Mercedes 300DT it won't let me.

Aren't theses the same part? or interchangable? I think they would be but maybe I'm wrong.........because otherwise I'm going to order one and see if it will fit my 300DT.....oh and the part # is 88012

thanks,

Steve

Did you consider ordering one from our host? I've always gotten great service from MercedesShop.

Order the hood star from FastLane, they have good customer service. I am going to stop buying parts from Performance Parts, and order them all from FastLane and PartsShop. I can't find the parts I am looking for half the time on Performance Products web site, and they have poor customer service.

I have a Performance Products catalog for the 201 chassis. It looks to have shop manual drawings of EVERYTHING!! It breaks down the chassis, the engine, the transmission, the vacuum system, the interior, for every 190 gas and diesel including the 2.3-16. You can overhaul youThe people who sold me the car gave me it, since they still get their old mercedes mail from mailing lists they're on still. I used the send a friend card to myself for my jeep, but it's only after market trash that makes my jeep look like one of those retarded civics dudes drive.

Steve, just as a heads up, when you do get the new star, the base will be a bit smaller than the original. MB is substituting the hood stars with those that were used on the 190 cars. The hoodstar I got had a part number that started with 201 (190 series). When I called to question it, I was told that MB was phasing out the orignal part number. Of course with it in place, only I would notice the minor difference.
