    I need to replace my front nearside headlamp lens if anyone can assist, secondhand would be ideal as the car is 10 yrs old.
    1992 R129 300SL

    what happened m8?

    if you buy new buy 2 otherwise it will look odd.

    if your're not bothered about OEM then eurocarparts or German & Sweedish.

    i'd go MB there not that dear.

    Not sure with the age, but have you checked to see if just the lens is a spare part from MB?

    This may be one of those parts that defies the normal pricing and amazes you at how cheap it is.

    Try your dealership parts dept. first.

    You may as well just order one from Europarts, it's only going to be the same Bosch lens as the dealer sells but in a different coloured box.

    Guess what the stealership was cheaper by 2 squids. Still cost me £59 though.

    £60 out your pocket, when you didn't need it, is £60. But it could have been worse. ;)

    ALPS you have to come to Kettering GTG.

    Someone with a real AMG W202 has to represent.
