Lower bumper is split on W114. W115's have single bumpers.

Instagram @derstrichacht for interesting W114/5 pics.

Please correct if wrong.

And if anyone has ever seen pics of the lower and upper bumpers on a pre-facelift w114, please let us know!

In an urban environment, the meter maids look for any excuse to issue tickets. This would be a fix-it ticket.

After just today switching the bulb on my plastic trim US headlights and super-gluing the cracked plastic back together while in there... The euro glass lenses would be much cooler, I would assume a better quality product in general. Now I appreciate them more. Before, looking only at pictures, it looked like just a matter of taste. No longer.

Mercedes Classic Center in Irvine, ask for Tom Hansen.

You can find them other places but if they are not OEM they will NOT fit right and you will be wasting time and $$$.

hi,
i recently purchased the same car and i am looking for some ideas on wheels and tires. I like the wide white walls with the hubcaps.( like the pic)
Did you end up lowering the car? i can't really find any info on how to lower it and i really don't want to cut the springs as some people suggested.

thanks for your help
