A while back had the mirror turn signals replaced by Shahnawaz with brand new ones, one of them had a small crack in it other one had a slight mark as well but was fine but despite my detailing efforts they just didnt look perfect compared to the rest of the exterior, plus they were pretty cheap for brand new parts, the passenger side turn signal brand new costed 3600rs and driver side for some reason was 4200rs even though both looked identical to me dont know why was that.

now have two spare working indicators incase god forbid one gets damaged and i need a quick replacement, these took three weeks to arrive from germany after ordering. shahnawaz hardly stocks parts for w203s now they all have to be ordered from Germanm through then, they mostly stock parts for much newer models.
replacing the indicator was very simple, you fold the mirrors and then there are some tabs you press and the whole mirror housing with the indicator is released and comes out leaving the mirror and motor mechanism attached to the car. then simply unbolt and swap out the connectors.
I was impressed that the car was so smart that even with the key out of the ignition though unlocked and thus can bus was live it still managed to detect that the indicator was removed by itself.

what was not cheap however was the driver door rubber trim, on mine it was falling apart and few clips on lower portion of the door were broken, got a new door trim from shahanwaz and they replaced every broken clip, total cost for just one door was 20k for a piece of rubber trim!
but got it anyway as no compromise on the Mercedes Thunk and clunks sound or any other outside sound entering into the cabin and the sagging trim at the lower portion of the door especially looked bad. the rest of the doors were fine however. with proper care expect it to last a really really long time.
