Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it. You'll still have the same ebay warranty.

Not sure if these are the full workshop manuals. The schematic in colour in the 2nd one is pretty cool. Pricey though.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Hard-Case-Mercedes-Benz-Car-Care-Kit-in-German-Geprufte-Qualitat-/142410222261?hash=item21284f8ab5:g:btsAAOSwrfVZO0BE

This one is killing me. For years I have been looking for a Car Care Kit -in German, and here it is. As mint as can be, and affordable as well.
Problem: It is the W126 era >:(
Hopefully this can make someone else happy.

I know it's a silly little thing, but in all these years I have never seen a white fob.


Look closer.  It has been dyed.  The thread around the outer perimeter has also been painted over.  Even worse, the seller is asking $50 for it?!  Full retail price from Mercedes is only $35 for a new one.  Must be another dreamer.

You're not entirely off, though, Stan.  Back in the 1980's there was a short period in time Mercedes offered these key fobs in various colors to match the interior of the car.  Like you, I've never seen parchment, but I have seen black, blue, dark red, dark olive green, palomino, and brown.  They never lasted as long as they should have..
