You are kindly asked to share with opinion and knowledge about how make conversion of Mercedes 300CE-24 to the 500Estyle.
I would like to change front bumper and fenders. Will you be so kind to link me manufacturers of such products or if someone has such used OEM parts for sale its better.

500E Style ? As in what front body shape only ?
Or are you going for engine etc.

Yes my opinion is to change only the front body shape.
If You have any resources will you be so kind to share with them.
PRE FACELIFT circa 1988
POST FACELIFT on 1988 300CE
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.
