    After MONTHS of searching for a new boot spoiler, I came acrossed a full W124 Carat Duchatelet kit on German ebay.
    There were seperate lots for the front bumper, rear bumper and boot spoiler, but I managed to win the lot for a combined 371.50 Euro (Plus whatever the delivery will be).
    To say I'm dead chuffed is an understatement. Only last weekend I was telling aka$h how it had been a chore to try and find a boot spoiler.
    He suggested a new front and rear bumper, just in case something happened. So when I saw this, I thought "why not?"

    Front Bumper LINKY
    Rear Bumper LINKY
    Boot Spoiler LINKY

    It's a little odd how it's a RHD, UK registered car, been broken in Germany! But, hey-ho as long as I can get my kit.

    :D :D :D

    Goodness, you find some great things on ebay in der Vaterland!

    (A very elated) Darren

    At risk of being a party pooper - does the rear spoiler from an E300-24v saloon fit the coupe (if its for your coupe) - I thought that the boot lids were different... Hope I'm wrong.

    I've got a pair of Carat 124 bumpers in the garage...

    If only I'd known you wanted some.

    I was offered a little while ago, but I didn't want to go to the hassle of borrowing bits to make up moulds.
    I didn't fancy running the risk of anything going wrong with someone else's bodykit part.

    This way, I've got a whole spare kit, which I may make some moulds of later :)

    Sure, no need for moulds though - I'd like it off! Just need an alternative bootlid in the right colour thats all.

    The boots are different, but they are the same width, which is the import thing here :)

    Excellent - happy days. :D

    Perhaps its just the AMG ducktail that won't fit both (or am I wrong again... :eek:)
