EURO BUMPERS ??

I have searching info on the various MBZ euro bumpers. Everything I have found on eBay or Craigslist are really pricey !

I see a lot of MBZ sedans that have euro bumpers for sale on Craigslist.

Question ? What year and model sedan that has euro bumpers will fit our
SL roadsters.

Go to the EPC and find the 107 part number then put that into "search", it will tell you what other models, if any, used them.

Euro Bumpers ...

Ok, not too relevant for US residents, but anyway; when I went to "Ivo" (he's a local reference, especially also for the 107, www.mercedes-only.nl ) for some spare parts, the answer for having Euro bumpers was simply ... "No".

Reason; for every 107 he could get imported from the US he would have to search himself like crazy for finding them before delivering to his own customers.

This is for finding Euro bumpers, in Europe ... Kinda explains the pricing, also overthere ... ?

Answer: None.
Our Euro bumpers are 107 specific.

Funny. I think I stored that set for about a year waiting for someone to buy the pretty nice pair from me for $650. Ebbs and flows. Wheels seem plentiful now but bumpers and headlights seem incredibly scarce. Supply and demand is interesting to watch over the past 3 years I've been obsessing about 107s.

Hell, I bought a whole car for $700, early US bumpers, euro lights (so so), bananas and a metal star - and it ran !! Don't be in too much of a hurry, things will show up.

This is helpful insight. I have a friend in NL searching on my behalf across western Europe for euro-spec bumpers, lights and AMG kit right now.

Fonzi - keep me posted on your wheel inventory. Currently, the BBS seems to be my favorite, possibly the Gen II Penta but tomorrow is a new day.
