I really want to update the look of my taillights but im not too crazy about haveing to shave a bit of my trunk and all to be able to fit 95+ light assemblies. So has anyone outthere ever heard of or seen rear taillights for a 92-94 just coated with a different color scheme. Like instead of all read with some amber inlay, just red and white like the last W140's withough changing the shape of the light?

Does everyone get me or is my expanation not very clear? let me know guys thanks!

None are available as far as I know. Your only option is to ugrade to the post 94 model cluster. There isnt much grinding to do on the trunk. You will be suprised at how easy it is

but will they line up?

thank you for the reply

I didnt think it would be too complicated but then i read somewhere that the new lenses might not line up with the old socket arrangement. Is this as easy to fix as buying the entire assembly including socket placements and then just plug in the new wiring?

Thank you

You will need the whole cluster and not just the lens. They line up 100%. I know from experience. Plug and play. You will have to grind your trunk though

thats tru about wot gil says. because if ur guys are talking about the S class then same think was done to my car. my car is a 94" model with the red and white cluster lights. and the trunk was made more rounded. other than that u shouldn't have much problems.
