FS/Free: w201 Bosch Euros, OVP relays, heater valve, smog pump valve. Bay Area, CA


I have a set of real Bosch euro headlights, with DDM 5000k HIDs. The HIDs are the high beam and low beam version with the full harness, and the magnetic actuator that pushes the bulb further in or out to change from high beams to low beams.

My 190E was totaled and I was going to keep these in case I got another w201, but it's just taking up room at my new house and I don't foresee buying another one soon.

Passenger side light is perfect. It even has a new(er) glass lens. I was in process of finding new lenses for both lights but only got the new lens for the passenger side so far.

Driver's side light has 1 broken mount (the bottom one). I was going to open it up and attach an L-bracket to it but the headlight never moved around without this mount so I left it as is.

I just found out the lens has 1 of the 8 mounts snapped, and the turn signal slot cracked.

The driver's side lens should be re-sealed.

I'm located in Northern California, but could ship these if there's interest. $250.

Pictures, and a quick description of each photo if necessary. If there are more views that you guys want to see, let me know. I've tried to take pictures of any problem areas (found a few new ones).

Passenger side (newer glass):

Driver's side (older glass):


Top view. Driver's side light on right side:

Bottom of passenger's side, all intact:

Bottom of driver's side, note bottom mounting tab is broken off, and one of the headlight lens snaps is also broken off (bottom left of pic) - I just noticed this:

Closer view of the broken areas:

Inside the light:

Driver's side lens needs to be cleaned up and resealed (looks uglier than it needs to be, but the hood hides this area):

Driver's side, just noticed that this tab that the corner light slides into cracked. Looks like a fresh crack. JB Weld-able.

Clearing out more of my garage... Some w201 parts I found laying around, would fit other vehicles too, particularly w124s.

I've got 2x OVP relays. $30 each shipped. They're both good, 1 of them I pulled out of my car before it went to the junk yard, the other was a spare I kept in my glove box. Both OEM Mercedes ones.

EDIT: One is sold, one left.

Brand new heater valve, I think it's MTC branded. Car was totaled before I got to put it in. $10 shipped. Basically free to whoever wants it, the $10 covers shipping. If you're in the Bay Area, you're welcome to pick it up from me free.

EDIT: Sold.

Brand new smog pump valve, MTC branded. Again, $10 shipped or free picked up in the Bay Area. \

EDIT: Sold.

Anybody in the Bay Area interested in tan w201 seats? I have the full set of power seats front, and also the rear seats. In pretty darn good condition. My aunt had covers put on the front seats when new, and it was left that way for about 15 years. I'm using the seats as lounge chairs in my garage right now but would entertain offers if somebody needs them. Bay area only, no way I'm shipping these things.
