I am the proud owner of my 3rd Benz an '81 300sd. I really want some European Headlights but having a hard time figuring out what will fit. First, is there a difference in the year range? Second, there are several used pairs on Ebay but the back of the housing is different on some of them and I want to make sure they will fit? Please any help is greatly appreciated.

Any W126 Sedan lights will work just fine.

As long as they are for the W126 SEDAN, the yes, any year will work. Make sure to buy the glass Euro's and not the cheap a$$ Chinese "retro" plastic junk that a lot of sellers have on ebay.

The first link shows a Bosch Euro unit for the W126 sedan.
The second link shows a picture of a W124 Euro headlight which will NOT fit the W126.
