Hey people,

Recently there was a discussion on aftermarket tailights for the 1st gen. I found a link...

1985-1993 Mercedes Benz 300SD - Anzo Tail Light

I am thinking bout buying them but I am still thinking twice about it...

What do you people think...

Thanks

Guys, wait a minute are you sure this is for W140? its saying 1985-1993 which is year of manufacture for w124, (so the 300SD doesnt make much sense) also the tail light is bit too long and narrow justfrom the photo.....

I asked them if its for w140 or w124, will let you kno if i get reply....

Miloking thanks for the cool pic.

I send them an email as well. Just as soon as i found the tail lights guess have to wait for a couple of days. but if they replied to you earlier then let us know...thanks....

For the sake of the desperate people wanting aftermarket tailights...hehe :p

Oh and one more thing
If these really fit...it would look really nice if the white lenses is smoked thinly.

i would get them if they fit W140, when i had my Eclass i had bit of a crash and had to replace tail lights and got aftermarket lights that look very similar and looked real nice (my E was same color as my S) ...and for $200 thats not bad price at all....

yes, i would have to agree. I was just scrolling through different pics of w124 and w140 tail lights. and i guess it is really hard to really see it. but then again we will just have to wait for the email from the company...

it is really hard to find aftermarket parts for the 1st gen, btw thanks a lot for the pics....

regadless of what they say it wont fit, look at this pic side by side (especialy the top corner is much more rounded on W140) so this is deffinately for W124 :-( so search for 1st gen LED tail lights continues.....

I dont know i wouldnt risk it.... unless they can provide another photo:)

They do look a little far off - but those pics aren't the best - as you say - more info required before purchase for sure.

WARNING! The tail lamps on the site are for a W124 ! ! ! !

They are just erroneously listed for a 300SD, but it SHOULD say they are for a 1985-1993 300D (Not S!!!!!)

Just look at them, they are W124 tail lamps, and years of production (85-93) matches the W124, not the W126 (1980-1990) or W140 (1991-99).
