Never had that insurance issue in the 20 years I've lived here with unregistered cars. Maybe getting a different company is in order. Or a car cover.

What insurance doesn't want it on your property and why? Usually it's zoning or code enforcement that gets on your case for that.

There is a salvage sale near me running a 2001 SLK manual. I understand that's the first year for a 6-speed. Any idea if the trans would bolt in and if any other parts would swap over?

I'm digging around Copart and IAAI for wrecked examples. I'd kind of prefer a 5-speed for originality but the 6-speed 2001+ W203 and 2002+ C coupes will be easier to find.

Is a W202 5-speed conversion possible?

Specifically for a 1994 C280. Is there any U.S. model that came with a 5-speed which could be a donor? Like the 80's 190 series or 90's 300SL?
