    Here's a thread that will give you info. The complete assemblies are no longer available so you will have to buy facelift headlight assemblies and pre-facelift lenses.

    I think http://speed-autoteile.com is a good source for Euro parts but I haven't used them myself.

    Brian,

    You can buy 1994 E500 euro headlights complete (since 1992-1993 are NLA) and then get the 1992-1993 lenses to convert so they are correct for your 1992. They are available from the dealer and not too expensive (less than $1k I believe).

    If you need help let me know and I can get some coming for you.

    Steve

    The good thing is that 500E owners can turn around and sell the E500 lenses that came on the factory headlights to an E500 owner as spares for THEIR car, to help recoup a bit of costs. Every little bit helps.
