WTB & Question: W123 Amber Corners

I need (2) sets, four total, of good quality Dark Amber Euro front marker/turn signal lights for my W123(s).

- does anyone have any to sell?
- any solid sources for them in the U.S.?
- does anyone know/have the MB Part Number for them?

Thank you in advance - I appreciate any info.

thank you,

Kieran-

I recently bought a set of Corner lights off ebay. The driver's side one of my brother's coupe was cracked after somebody hit him (and cracked his new headlight door too).

I got them because they were a good price compared to what I normally see them for ($25 for the pair). When I finally got them they were two different colors. I don't know if they are both USA spec and one is just heavily faded or if one may be a Euro spec. I have a pic below if anyone can tell the difference.

But as far as sources for these lights. I've seen them listed on Adsitco's website. They actually have them listed for less than the US spec lights. I know their items are usually Bosch brand (I got my W124 euro lights from them 5 or 6 years ago) and they are bosch. But I don't know if these may or may not be a knock off due to their low price ($62.10/per light) compared to the US spec lights ($152.10/per light)??

Here's my photo:



Here's their light(s):

Here's their light(s):

The top 2 are USA corners. Note the reflectors. The bottom corner is Euro, which is exactly what I am looking for as well - same side. The USA version has "SAE" on the lense. The Euro has "E1" on the lense. Please let me know if you ever come across another just like the bottom pic.

So what is different about the euro / us corners? One is darker? One has a reflector? Is there something I'm missing...? are they interchangable?

Euro on the left, US on the right

Euro = dark amber, no reflector, "E1" on the face
US = light amber/yellow, side reflector, "SAE" on the face

Can be from Bosch or Hella

Original Euro version has bulb case for single point contact bulb (Euro lights do not have park lights illuminate the corner lamps). US version has bulb case for dual point contact bulb (corner light is used for park light AND turn signal, hence the 21w/4w bulb)

That's kind of what I thought. This seems like one of the few instances where the Euro light doesn't really add anything.
