    I thought the 500E only came as a saloon?

    AFAIK Mercedes didn't build an E500 estate

    Edit: If they did, can I have one please?

    I've never heard of a 124 500E/E500 estate.

    Me either. Though about 3 years ago, I saw a W124 coupe with E500 running gear. It was on mobile.de and my German was (is) poor, so I don't know what sort of originality/conversion it was.

    A1248851221 appears to be a rear bumper trim for a 500E

    do they have estate style bumpers then (ie shorter insert trim) compared to standard saloons?

    i am pretty sure the above part number will fit my standard W124 estate as the bumper it attaches to is the same part number for my car & the 500E.

    however, i was wondering if there is any additional garnish added to the 500E so it wont actually look any good on my car unless i also purchase the said garnish

    any thoughts would be most welcome.

    its to replace a cracked bumper insert on my car.

    I think I've heard of a Brabus E36T, though not an E500 estate.

    There have been 500E estates and indeed Bernie Ecclestone had a w124 E60 Estate ! But they were likely made to order.

    The easiest way round this is to mould the sides of the 500E bumper to the centre section of the estate bumper.

    looks like is not going to fit my car.... thanks anyway for everyone's input.

    i want somehting that will just fit easily - dont want to mod or repair etc - i may aswell repair my current insert if i have to go that route.
