Fuel lines

I am wanting to replace the fuel lines in my 420, since I have read in this forum that they rust on the inside causing junk to get into your fuel distributor and injectors causing the infamous rough idle. The problem being is that I have a 420SE. Probably upwards of 95% of parts for US cars are the same as mine....and this one would be too I'm sure...except that my lines have to be shorter than ones for a SEL! question: are the fuel lines from a 300SE the same? I guess the main question would be the connections up at the engine.

If a US part won't work, it's not that big of a deal since my sister is going to Germany in about a month and she can pick them up for me as well as a few other things, but if I can get the parts over here and save her the trouble I will.
'86 420SE Euro
904 Midnight Blue, Gray Velour
Dad bought it new, now I own it.
