Replace Front 1998 E320 Lights/Bumper

I have a W210 (1998 E320). I would like to replace the front (bumper and lights) with the newer, more aerodynamic look created in 2001 (i think). --this is the new front that I want. --my car's front

Aren't the headlights the same?
The "face-lift" on 210 bodies was done in 2003.
Anyway, let me know if you'll go ahead with this project. I am on market for silver bumper for 97 model.

Was it Jakartaexpat who changed the facelift parts on a W211. Wouldn't expect the W210 be any more difficult.

The face lift W210 must have appeared earlier than 2001, I had a face lift W210 at 2000 and I think it had been on sale in Europe for about a year. 2003 was already a new model, W211, not just a face lift. Actually W211 started in March 2002 in Europe.

Could have a look at epc to see if the lights are the same, I would assume the same as Kajtek. The grill is also new but the old one might fit.

The face lift however has integrated the bumper and the lower part of the front below the hood, looks like a bigger difference than the W211 face lift did.

Better wait for comments from members who have actually done the work or who have spent time looking at the parts data.
