    I take it the "Middle" Hole is now redundant! :dk:

    I drilled that on my extension piece in error on the drivers side deflector.

    Do you think this mod could be applied to the non-AMG non-V8 E Class?

    Yep, I do think that.
    Infact I think it might be easier for you to attach the stone guard without having to extend it like I've done.
    Check the lip on your wing, I wonder if its got a wider lip than the AMG wing.

    Is yours like this, because on my car its narrower, which is why i wanted to extend to the second hole.
    W213 E63 stone deflectors.

    If yours is like that I recon you'd get away with only attaching to the one hole since you'd have a bigger contact patch.
    Having said that, its not exactly difficult to extend it.
    I need to find time to install mine now to make sure they'll stick to the wing OK.

    Sorry, I don't have an E class yet, but I'm seriously seriously looking.
    My previous C had a lot of tar on the wing behind the front wheels. I've never even seen these before and they're really subtle, so it's definitely something I'd like to install WHEN I find something. Just seen so much junk with mouldy boots, broken air con, big chips in the bonnet, masses of scanned fault codes, no heated seats and generally not looked after.

    I intend on keeping the car when I find it, so these deflectors will be on my Radar and your investigation and write up on this thread is really useful. Thank you.

    Good luck with the search. Is it a W213 model you're trying to find then?
