All Major Problems Worked Out, Ready For Personalization

Let me first thank everyone here who helped me with fixing up my '91 190e. I must say that out of all the cars I have ever worked on, this car has been the least aggravating. Every problem that has come up has been a simply fix that has taken no more than maybe 4 hours max (most of that was head work). So far I have fixed the following problems:

Battery drain (alternator was shorted)
ABS (blown fuse)
Blown Speakers (turned the volume up way too high...whoops)
Fuse #13 keep blowing (central locking vacuum pump was shorted)
Cold Engine Stalling (co adjustment/fuel was too lean)
Water Pump Noise (warped pulley)
Idle drop with amp on (co adjustment fixed this too)

At any rate, there are still some small problems left but I am not worried, the car runs great as is. So right now I am considering some modifications to add some personalization to my car. The only problem is I am having some trouble locating some of the parts I want. Here is a list:

Euro Head Lights w/clear corners (under $400 for both perhaps?)
Smoked Tail Light kit (DIY kit so I don't have to pay $400 for them)
Blue Console Lights (part #072601-012230 but emits blue light)
Light up gauges for instrument cluster (numbers/symbols light up in blue)
Decent Looking Side Mirrors (square-ish so that they fit the style of the car)
Crome Grille (like this, but cheaper maybe?)
New carpet (mine has a hole in it)

and (later on mods)

5 speed tranny
AMG Wide Body
Class1 Wide Body (found it for 6 grand... all carbon kevlar)
(look-a-likes ok)
