I got mine of da 'bay for my 190E. Not only do the look GREAT, the improved lighting PERFROMANCE is the real shocker. And, btw, a million people will tell you "go Bosch". I pulled the OEM equipment out, and compared side by side with the new ones. Only thing I can give Bosch is 100% fit, where these are like
95ish%. NOTHING to kill the deal, almost imperceptible difference in fit. Along the same lines as my 600 Avantgarde grill. DO IT!

Sorry, I'm in the OEM lights camp.. I've had some of the cheap knock offs in my hands and the finish just wasn't there. From what I gather there is quite a bit of fluctuation from light to light.. Find a set of good used Bosch units if you want to save $$.

YMMV!

I have both on my car. I have the bosch on my left side and the DEPO from www.importvision.com on my right side. I did change the lens on the Depo to OEM but apart from that they look exactly the same. It would look pretty stupid on my car if the DEPO looked like crap.

The only thing you may have a problem with is the vacuum adjust feature not working on the Depos which most of us dont have anyway so...

I have heard good things about www.katmac.com

Also any eurolight out there completely out performs the crappy US ones. So get what you can afford and enjoy.

Dude, look at the PICTURES I provided of my 190E above. The one on the top is with the OEM US lights, the one below is with the Euros. My Euros came with the clear corners.

They look like 2 completely different cars [:)]
Thanks! PRECISELY the reason why W201ers need to go to Ebay like I did, g4et the lights, the grill, a COMPLETE front bumper for $40 bucks and authentic AMG Monoblocks for a steal. Thanks Ebay[;)]You changed my car[8D]
