Was less than half year installed - no scrathes.
Its from Hella and Made in Germany.
No P/N though.

That's non 500 lens correct? It doesn't look chrome on the inside.

Being honest I can not guarantee, but since mine broke I had it installed.
But since it looks milky on the long beam side I ordered one from Gemany which I had installed yesterday.
The numbers inside say 129578-00 RE and on the outside:
I ordered and was charged for a 500E lens though.
the reflector is seperat as far as I know!

I am pretty sure that is a standard Euro lens, not a 500E Euro lens. The 500E lenses are chrome inside, and the lens in front of the H3 bulb is much more clear on the 500E Euro lenses. See photo below...
1995 E420 (W.I.P.)
1994 E500 (Q-ship)
1993 300D (Sportline)
1987 300D (Sportline Stage 2)
1987 300D (R.I.P)

I just checked my 500E right side lens, at the bottom left (looking at the lens from the front), just after the "Made In Germany", there is this part number:
001-138 326 (right lens)
001-138 325 (left lens)
What number is in this location on your lens?

you were right;
the shop could not get an oe/oem lens so they installed one from a e320 or 300e.
I was told after confronting them with the facts you guys gave me.
So I will cancel the ad and try my best on craigslist or fleabay.

Shame it's not a 1994/95 E320 lens, I could use one of those! Oh well. Good luck!

Rudy - post it on mercedesshop.com and it will be gone in a week or two those guys are always catching rocks in their euro lights.
I think$100 is very fair for a lens in excellent shape
