The unpainted panel strips without wiper holes are avilable from a MB dealer or from PartsShop(Maybe?) for dirt cheap - my auto body shop painted them to match for free, other people have had theirs done for about $30. Or, Barrie posted instructions for modifying the wipers to work via an adapter he made out of aluminum at Headlight Wipers & Euro Headlights

- otherwise you have to get the Euro wipers for big $$$.

I did the trim strips on mine and left off the wipers. I also ordered a new plastic grill insert and trim strips from PartsShop for about $35, and had the grill painted matte (not flat, not glossy, about the color of the new MB grills) black and installed the new grill as well. Painted grill insert on 300E
It is an inexpensive upgrade, and looks like this:

Enjoy your new lights!
