Help how do I know?

Fastlane looks to have good prices but there are 2 types of disks for the rear of my 1996 500sl. One that is for ESP and one without ESP. My question is how do you know you have Electronic Stability program ESP? Did all the 1996 500sl have it? Thanks

+1 on the ESP switch. Another good resource to find out whether or not your car has a certain option is to use the M-B Club of Russia's VIN decoder. Type in a VIN and you get back lots of good stuff.

Oh, you can always e-mail Phil before you order to make absolutely sure. He's saved me from ordering the wrong thing on more then one occasion.
