    In order to assist your request please advise where you are located and what side of the road you drive on. (Left traffic like UK or Right Traffic like USA?)

    I am in USA we drive on the left but at this point I just need a driver side left headlight. I got lucky with a brand new right headlight but cant find a left one for 4 months now and my car is seating at a shop for more the 7 months.

    I dont care what everyone would say but my car would NOT sit in shop for 4 months. At least you could put regular w124 euro lights till you find 500E light

    You're probably not going to find a driver side 500E or E500 Euro headlight. Both side are NLA, and it appears the facelift versions are now NLA for both sides as well.

    The USA E500 driver side headlight appears to still be available (link), you could get one of those and buy the correct pre-facelift lens if available (link). You don't get city lights or vacuum level adjust, but otherwise it will look correct and work properly. Check on lens availability first though, it appears the driver side 500E Euro lens might be NLA now... uh-oh.

    The other option is to get a standard 124 Euro headlight assembly, modify it by removing the shield over the H3 bulb, and installing the 500E Euro lens. That is, if you can still get the early 500E Euro lenses.

    Part numbers:

    MB Classic shows approximate availability but you MUST contact a dealer and have them check worldwide inventory in Paragon to get accurate information:

    I only have 2 new OE sets left....not selling them individually at this time, sorry.

    A decent solution would be to buy a new or used 94' E500 lamp unit and put on the still available new early euro lens.

    Bad news guys. From MB Naperville:

    "Good morning, I have checked on the parts you have inquired about. Part# 000 820 12 66 / IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE"

    So... left side currently NLA and right side is showing limited stock in Germany.

    Lenses... pre-facelift. Crap. I was going to order a spare set, I waited too long.

    Right now, the ONLY thing you can get a pair of is facelift Euro lenses. Everything else is either NLA on one side, or both sides.

    Time to beg MB Classic to do another production run, but I have a feeling that isn't going to happen.

    Re: 500E preface left euro headlight

    Oh that’s a problem. Depending how this plays out, I may have a set of pre-facelift euro lamps for sale. Same as GSXR, I sat that project on the shelf for too long.

    Oh well. My stockers don’t look bad at all, but I wanted the option.

    Me too. Damn. I wanted to buy a pair of extra lenses ... but wanted to finish a house remodel first b/c remodeling is like spending money b/c you are tired of money. I waited too long
