W126 Headlights in a W124??? Am I screwed?

Hi, I’m afraid that I’ve made a newbe mistake. I bought some DEPO headlights off Ebay a few months ago for my 1989 300E, and I’ve just gotten around to trying to install them. Right off I notice they are much different than the stock lights – so I went back and checked the Ebay ad. The ad says they are fit the 1989 300E, but it also says the lights are for the W126 Mercedes, not the W124. When I bought these I didn’t know the difference, so I just went by the fact he said it fit the 300E. The deadlight shape is different, and I really wonder if these will work. It’s way too late to return them – am I screwed? What are my options? Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Contact the seller first and see if he has W124 headlamps to exchange.

If not, he must let you return them and refund you.

His ad mistakenly does say 300E several time, which is wrong.

You can also file a complaint with both e-bay & PayPal.

He's still selling them, I see no reason he won't refund you if you pay the shipping back to him.

He should just exchange them for the W124 Depo's he's selling

He doesn't have to, he can exchange them for the correct lamps.

His ad does say 300E for several years, and he has a separate listing
for the correct lamps.

Most sellers will work with you if you're civil in your words.
What a dick.

Sell the lamps as you said and buy the W124 lamps from another seller on e-bay.

There are plenty.
