If you want cheap as possible, then you need to get the replicas (made in Taiwan)... its around $150-160usd for the left and right lens... since your car is a 93, you will need to get the middle strip as well, its about $100 for the German ones... so total will be around $250-260usd

The real made-in-Germany ones are around $230usd. Plus the middle strip, and its up to $330usd... its very hard to find the 97-99 taillights used from wreckers, because the w140 car doesn't get wrecked all that often, and in the odd cases you do find them, they are near the new price...

you will also need to grind the corners of your trunk, because the newer w140s had rounded edges (where it meets the lights)... the older w140s had sharp edges...

cheers
