Check this out! They have the non-resistor type you need, shipping may be high though.

Good luck

R in Bosh spark plugs # means resistor.

if you look closely at the picture you can see the R they say f8dpp32 in the title but are likely not, as far as i know up until recently at least with our local deler they were the only ones who currently supplied the non R units, once they were out they started selling the R's As well

I checked NG, AC Delco, and Champion and they all specify Resistor type plugs for the CLK430. Are you sure that you really need non-resistor plugs in a newer MB? I thought you only had to worry about burning coils in the older electronic ignition cars.
