    Is there such a thing out of the showroom, or can I get one in this country?

    Should be a similar price to one on a C class? let me know "roughly" and we can set a "max" price for your trip to Germany?

    Also, I am going to Germany (Wolfsburg then Berlin) much later in the year, if you need parts later.

    I suppose I am going to need the conversion frame, and chrome grill insert?

    If you are interested in that W124 SEC hood...we have a good one in almadine red (complete with grill insert and all)...

    Right, those update frames, need to be welded to the bonnet...They also require new lights, new grill and new bonnet star.

    My advice would be to go to a scrappy, find a 124 (coupe/saloon/estate all the same) preferably a rear end damage one and take the whole front off them, bonnet, grill, lights and badge.

    Easiest way, maybe not the cheapest, but will certainly look better, and outlast everything else too. <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>
