This is airbox for R129 from 89-92 with KE-injection, so it will not fit to yours R129 from 96.

EssiRS is correct in terms that the above particular airbox is engineered for the (1990-93) KE-Jetronic applications with a mechanical fuel distributor.

Technically speaking, the above airbox can fit the later (1994-98) LH-Jetronic fuel injection M119 engines.
However, it is not designed for it as the semi-circle cut-out is there to accomodate the earlier CIS-E fuel distributor.

Another distincive difference in both airboxes is the earlier versions incorporate a PCV tube attachment on the upper left side of the airbox housing.
This PCV tube attachment was later updated by a direct connection to the rear TB assembly for the (1994-98) LH -Jetronic fuel injected M119.

Tommy, if you just want to pick out the Star and Mercedes in white, it's very easy to do.
The star has to be masked up but the raised 'Mercedes' lettering, you simply run over it with a sponge paint roller.
I did it to my air box and it doesn't look too bad.
