Done it to 2 cars.

The pass side of the 123 will also swap over after swapping the seat tracks, and there is a hole in the seat frame back for the Arm rest, just have to cut the hole in the MB Tex. remove the back cover to see where the hole is.

Dosn`t make since to use another drivers seat that has been butt pounded for years and miles.

Seems like there was a thread or I was talking to someone recently, that they used 124 seats in a 123. what about the W201, (190E/D) or are they too narrow?

From seeing W201 seats, I am willing to bet that they are too narrow.
