Help with my c280!!! Please!

Hello, I recently purchased a 1996 benz c280. It has been wrecked in the front and needs a hood/grill,bumper,both fenders,drivers headlight,radiator. My question is.... Are there any other years/models that will have body parts that will fit on my specific car? i.e., will a 98 c220? work? Will the body parts be interchangeable? I am hoping that there will at least be one or two models that will interchange. I am a brand new benz owner, so be easy on me if a c220 doesn't even exist. Thanks a ton in advance.

The W202 section (not the AMG one however) is where you want to ask this for a better reply. Generally speaking tho, yes most if not all of the pre-facelift cars should have interchangeable panels. There is a c200, c220, c230, c230 Kompressor, c280, c36, c43, etc. that will share some components tho the AMG cars have many specialized performance related parts. The 1999 & 2000 cars in the US were facelifted which carried a different trunk, antennae mast moved to integrated rather than the fender mount, etc., so they may not work. The facelift cars have different lower body kits.

Also, please update your User CP with your location and other members may be able to make specific recommendations to you on where to find the stuff locally.
