Euro coupe bumpers

A buddy of mine got real euro coupe bumpers for a 300CD or 280CE, he wants $500 + shipping for it. Be fast he has some potential buyers.

$500+, Nah.

Euro bumpers are nice to look at, but I'd never pay more than $200 for a set. They just aren't worth it.

they are slimmer, less chunky then the US version. Its subtle, but noticeable.

He was asking euro sedan to euro coupe. I would like to know as well, as they look the same.

They are different; coupe bumpers don't have the side rubbers, one solid piece.

They really complement the W123 body style.
