Taking the plunge

Ok ready to buy my first 155. Are there many unobtainable parts I should know about ? Should I be hoarding stuff from eBay? If so what?

Any advice would be appreciated.

BTW there's a nice set of Sportpack alloys just about to go under the hammer on ebay, only trouble is they're in Wallsend, which is practically Scotland.

Re: Taking the plunge

Mirrors are definately worth hording, and if you get a 16v, sumps...

Re: Taking the plunge

There's a few parts no longer available for the v6 that I know about....

Front brake pipe (n/s) from Bosch ABS unit..
Front (left) head gasket..
Fuel pipes from the fuel pump..
Some smaller coolant hoses..
Gasket on top of the oil pump..
Dip stick tube and bracket..

There's bound to be others.

"Universal" parts seem to be in better supply than specific engine parts (with the exception of mirrors). Body panels, glass, suspension and electronic components seem not too bad.
