W124 (sedan), right side: B6 669 1182

S124 (wagon), left side: B6 669 1186
S124 (wagon), right side: B6 669 1181

MercedesShop quoted a price of US$50.00 for each about a year and half ago for me.

The Xenon upgrade is complicated, and most aftermaket kits will force you to loose the high beam.

W124s (sedan, coupe and cabriolet) owners can also factory order the illuminated stainless steel door guards (like the ones fitted to the S600 and the G500). You can order the Mercedes-Benz logo to be litted in either Blue, Green or Yellow. Rear non-illuminated matching stainless steel door guards can also be factory ordered. All are a directly fit requiring only minor electrical work. I have all the required factory part numbers if someone is interested.

S124 (wagon) owners can also factory order a set of rear lenses with the turn signals in clear finish instead of yellow (like the '93-'94 sedans had). The part number is B6 680 9900.

One of the most interesting FACTORY ordered equipments I have seen is the original Mercedes-Benz center Fridge Box, which can house a six pack of alluminun can drinks or a couple of bottles of wine. Mercedes-Benz calls it the Mercedes-Benz W124 MiniBar and its part number is B6 681 8701 (A). The MiniBar fits between the front seats and the central armrest has to be removed. Installed has to be done by a proffesional, since it requires the MiniBar to be attached to the A/C system.

The comfort one-touch window switch on W124s only works as a DOWN command, and the car must have the "Comfort Electronic Module" (which also closes all windows + sunroof from the key or the infrared remote) installed. It is NOT just a matter of changing switches. If you install the switch from, say an S-class, to a later model W124 it will not recognize the UP command.

Finally, a big combination of wood/leather steering wheel and gearshift levers can be also be factory ordered, matching the car's interior color and wood finishes.

did the comfort electric module come on later 124's or was it something that had to be ordered separately?

Express-down (only) front electric windows were installed on W124s from early production 1992 on.

Comfort feature which will allow all electric windows and sunroof to be closed by the key from an outside lock was installed by late 1993 / early 1994 depending on market destination.

No, sorry. I asked this same question to the dealer for a 1992 300TE that a cousin owns.

The module would not be compatible with older W124s.

I would have liked self locking doors that worked after driving off also window switches further up the panel by the gear lever and a longer central arm rest.

The self-locking doors after start-up were installed only on very late production W140s (1997 ->).

Late production S124s (wagons) had a lock/unlock switch installed besides the exterior mirror adjuster at the center console (this feature was installed on mid production 1995 models).
