Not sure but I think it may be the windscreen sunstrip as it's only on Elegance cars.

955 is the option code for elegance AND the "extension tube on the roof". I would imagine that on a W210 there is no "extension tube", the option code has probably been re-used.

These are the options.

Third headrest was standard from 1998 MY iirc.
Change of model year shows your car to be 1997 model spec but was built in 1996, so after August.
Additional boot locks towards outer edges of boot lid.
