The roller blind kits are still available in most colors for around $400.00

W126s as well as W140s could be factory ordered with two types of rear sunshades. One the regular shade that travels up and down (it comes in both, electric and manual operation). I'm not sure about the W126, but rear seat console on W140s must also be replaced to install the electric sunshade.

The other is the type is the electric curtains, which open to the sides (theater like).

The electric sunshade can be directly ordered from M.B. using the following part numbers:

Installation kit for the electric rear window sunshade:

B6 668 8410*

*until production date 09/85 part # A 126 683 09 00 must also be ordered.

Shade itself to be attached to the kit:

Black: B6 668 8411
Blue: B6 668 8432
Light tan: B6 668 8414
Mushroom: B6 668 8438
Medium red: B6 668 8416
Pine green: B6 668 8419

The SECs use different part numbers.

Thanks for the detail, A. Rosich.

On a side note, I had the opportunity to spend two weeks in your fine country last summer, primarily in San Jose. It is truly beautiful. I was only disappointed by the relatively low numbers of Mercedes on the road.

Chris, I am happy that you enjoyed our little but friendly country.

It is true that the Mercedes population has been dropping in the last few years. If you wondered around San Josť in the middle of the 80's, you could not believe the inmense number of M-Bs that popped everywhere.

Although car taxes are extremely high in this country (reason because there are not to many M-Bs), at that time used car importers found a loop hole on the tax law and began importing 5 year old cars like crazy.

Later the demand dropped and the government raised the taxes on used cars.

Still, Costa Rica is one of the few countries in Latin America where once in while you can see a S600/C32/E55/G55/SL500... going by. In upscale suburbs you can see C/E/S and G classes in good numbers.
