I suspect you are looking to do what they refer to changing the front. to the facelift E class.

There are numerous threads regarding these changes but for the most part front fenders are bolt on compatibile as is the later bonnet. New grille should come with the bonnet. Have a bit of a search in this forum under facelift and you read through the posts. I know there was one recently on this topic.

If all you are attempting is to graft 500e fenders onto your e320 bear in mind that the 500e also has boxed rockers. You will need to determine if there is any work necessary to get the new fenders and cladding to flow into the stock rockers and doors. If this all works out, you can add a 500e valance with the fenders and have the front end look of a 500e.

Probably the sweetest 500e look is the facelifted '94/95 with correct Euro headlights. If the cladding and sheetmetal are all painted the same color, this would be my personal preference.
