I have owned and i am sure the hoods are not interchangable. This is from memory though.

the deal is i found this hood in my shop its marked w111 but up torwards the back of the hood (towards the windshield) theres some indents on both sides not quite enough to be a fin but quite noticeable that make it look a little sporty but every picture of a w111 i pull up has smooth hoods like a 108..wondering what year specifically this came out on deffinetly looks like a 108/111 hood dont know if i just cant notice in the pic?

All w111 cars have those indents in the bonnet - they lead into the air intake for the cabin. The air intake for the w108 goes almost the whole way across the car, so they will not line up. Also, the windscreens are different between the 111 and 108's, so they probably will be wrong in the corners where it butts up to the cowl/scuttle under the windscreen. See the difference between the silver 108 and the blue 111.
