Looks great except for those ugly rims... :D

Just Kidding... I wouldn't mind a set of rims like that for my 129. :thumbsup:

So where's the diver supposed to jump from now? The dang hood?!

Are those Euro bumpers or 72/73 bumpers?

Thank you !

Thank you guys! When I found this donor euro car in Dallas, I immediately paid for headlight assembly and both bumpers drove up there (3.4 hrs one way from Austin) and picked them up unseen . It was worth the gamble.

Must be a bimmer guy . We call them park bench bumpers.

Obviously euro bumpers. U.S. have vertical bumperettes.:D

Very nice job ! I have similar wheels on my 600SL, and wondered how they would look on the 107 if and when I get it back together ! They look killer. Good job in yarding off those freaking park bench bumpers. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but those things just roach the clean and classic lines of the 107. After all, they were not the creation of a world class automobile designer, they were a reaction to the crazy 5MPH bumper regulation. Anyway, you've made your car a thing of beauty ! (If I didn't have 2 black cars, I'd be tempted to go black on my 107 :D)

I have had a big crush on these wheels for a long time. Looked fantastic on a w124 500E as well. I was planning to put them on my w126 coupe but figured that the r107 needed new tires. Thank you!

I've been wondering the difference between the square and round head lights, so do the square headlights indicate a Euro version?
Very nice ride!
