W108/W111 front blinker/indicator help needed

I was wondering if anyone knew what kind of bullet style indicators these were and where to source them? I have a feeling they might be aftermarket as i have not seen them on any mercedes apart from mine and the one in the picture. I was in an accident and mine were broken unfortunately. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The lens is definitely original, and we used to carry them (meaning that we no longer do). Try to order from a Benz dealer.

PN 111 826 0790 has a list price of $26.50.

Indeed original, referred to often as "Beehive" turn signals. Mine has them as well, as does my buddy's 69' euro W111 coupe.

I took them off of my 111 cabriolet. They are in excellent shape and I'll sell them to you if you are looking for a replacement. Email me if you are interested with a reasonable offer. I removed them because I prefer the look without. Check my signature site for pic of without.

I have to agree, the car takes another level of elegance without the beehives and with euro headlights. Much less busy & clunky than the US setup.

Hi,

I only need the lenses unfortunately. I am in Australia and i think they are only US/Euro domestic parts. Would anyone have any information on a parts store who still stock them?
