Post Carat Duchatelet - HELP Required Please

I have a 1995 124-series E320 Coupe. It has been fitted with a bodykit from the Belgian tuner Carat Duchatelet.

I have a couple of problems, however. My tow-hook cover on the Carat front bumper is missing, and I need to replace both front spoiler spot lamps.

I've tried contacting Carat, however they cannot help. Lighting specialists Hella made the spot lamps, but again they cannot help.

I've also tried breaker's yards, but these kits don't commonly turn up in these places.

So I turn to the benzworld forums......Does anyone know where I can find these items, or who would custom fabricate them? I'm based in the UK.

Here's a couple pics of my car, if you do not know what the bumper looks like :-)





Any help would be greatly received!

Thanks,

Darren

OOOOOOH, carat!!!! Those are sweet. But I've never seen a W124 Carat, you have something pretty rare and unique there on a great "classy chassis" the unburstable w124. the best ones from the factory have the Sportline upgrades, the AMG and Carat upgrades are highly cherished.

Go to the W126 section, below, and get ahold of Talbir, post up something like, "Help Talbir, need Carat bits" you know, he has a Carat W126 sedan, he is in London, maybe he'd know some tips to help you out and give you. He lives and breathes those cars (the 126ers)

If that doesn't work, how about SEC-SHOP Mercedes Benz Parts for 126 SEC, SEL, & SE Models w3 he is in London (I am pretty sure) too, ask him what you should do.

Also MercedesShop - Mercedes Benz Parts and Technical Information and post it in the "Technical Help" section (most read part)

Good luck mate
