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.

He's gotten back to me, wants me to pay return postage AND pay him about $30 to reship, says I bought incorrect part. I admit some fault, but his auction ad is wrong!
That's a load of crock! I'm sure you have pointed out to him that he has incorrect info in his listing and 1) he should correct his current/future listings imediately and 2) should pay for the shipping himself.

Then again, he may be stubborn and stick to his guns (likely scenario) so it may not be worth your time to keep arguing back and forth and either pay him the 30 bucks or sell the wrong ones somewhere else and buy the correct ones (preferably from another seller).

Good luck! :thumbsup:
