I figured you guys may be able to help me or point me to a right direction. Do any one happen to have a passanger side marker lens for an european model 450 sl W 107 body (amber color lens) that they don't want or want to sell? I had these lights deleverd from germany via a friend and when he shipped them to me post office did me a favor by breaking the lens of the turn signal and the headlight. Head light lens has been replaced thanks to A&F auto parts in Oakland, Ca. But they can not get me the side marker lens. I was looking forward to put these lights on my car but now I have to wait until I can find the darn lens.

thanks

This is one of the very few places I've found that has these. Too bad they don't have the reflector bowls or gaskets! I actually bought replacement lenses, markers and spares from them. Weird: They delivered Bosch replacement marker lenses. They were very noticeably a deeper yellow than the old ones - these fade considerably over time.

I have a used spare in storage, but I don't remember what side it's for. If you really want it, let me know and I'll see if I can find it.

thanks to strif2 web site address, my car looks like the day that it came off of the assembly line (at least on the headlight part). The european headlights look great and only cost me about $300 (no refund from the post office yet. Any way now I have to whatch out for stones on the road, but it was worth it.

New lens is $39 and readily available, in case you ever need another one.

Ron, is this a quote from your business? I "euro-ed" my 108 with lights from a fella in OZ. He told me one lense had recently been replaced. One of mine is clear and the other is ever so slightly yellowed, I am assuming the older is a bit discolored. Would a 108 lense be a similar cost? BTW, I have the flat, later style lenses. Although I prefer the look of the earlier rounded lenses, I do not think they are plentiful and, supposedly, lessen the light output/pattern. Any thoughts on that tidbit as well?

The price I gave was for a Euro w107 corner lens, rather than a headlight lens. We also stock Euro headlight lenses, but they do cost a bit more than $39.
