Why is a 6.9 waterpump so expensive? I am told that the last one currently in stock in Australia was sold this week for approx. $3500.00. This is making R-R ownership cheap!!!!
§3500,- really?? From a MB-dealer?
Since this year the 6.9 waterpump (A 100 200 3201/80) costs 517,-Eur (without 19% tax) in Germany. Till 31.12.07 the pump has cost 387,90 Eur (without 19% tax). The price includes the change with the old part.
By the way, it´s normal that the prices increase. MB would like to minimize their high costs for storage. The last two years MB sell the most of their (intersting) old parts for W110 up to W124 to the mb-clubs with al lower price. The rest was scrapped
by MB! This included really rare parts for example Interieur stuff, motorparts or chasisparts. That´s the way of business!
Here is a link to the german MB-club VDH, which became a lot of parts. VDH-Mercedesclubs
