GB: 500E EURO lights

I am starting a group buy for 500E EURO lights made by HELLA.

These are for the prefacelifted cars. 1986-1993 260E, 300E, 400E, 500E, 300D all w124 body styles including the 300CE.

I am doing the Group buy through PUMA, regular puma Price is $499 + shipping, the group buy price will be $459 + shipping for 5 sets. Payment will be sent to me in the form of money order, cashiers check or paypal through a bank account. I will put together a big cashiers check for PUMA.

Paul at PUMA is willing to ship directly from PUMA to whoever participates in this group buy through me, so that you dont have to pay double shipping (PUMA to ME, ME to you, you get the idea)

What is included?
1 pair front 500E EURO lights HELLA
2 Headlight bulbs (H4)
2 Driving light bulbs (H3)
2 City light bulbs (T4W)
2 Six pin connectors
1 set instructions

For $459 + shipping thats a great price for what it includes

Shipping will be about $25-$50.

What is not included that you need if you want to hook up vacuum adjust?
1 rosetta dial for vacuum adjust
1 vacuum adjust bezel for around your headlamp switch
1 rubber elbow
1 rubber T fitting
.5m of rubber for Misc. connections
5m of hard vacuum line

This stuff should be less than $100. IF you want this, I can get it from Germany this week, if not you can get it through the US dealer w/ part numbers, but it might take some time. My germany order should be here just after the start of the year, I have to complete ordering for Germany this week.

I hope that I have given everyone enough information.

Email me if you have questions. If you want to participate please email me your complete contact information.

I prefer emails instead of PMs, so please send me an email.

Thanks,

Austin


Note: If you have an E500, E320, E420 or you facelifted your car, email me and Ill see if I can get the facelifted lights

Regarding the Vacuum Adjust option.
BEZEL / ROSETTE
VACUUM DIAL / REGULIERSCHALTER
5m hard vacuum line
1 y-fitting
1 elbow fitting
1 blue restrictor
1 m rubber vacuum line

total for this option $100 +shipping from me to you
-send me your zip code
-I have to order these parts from germany, they should
be here mid january

I was hoping to get the parts for less than 100 dollars, but with the euro being so strong to the dollar it is difficult.

If you are from canada, then you probably already have the euro vacuum light switch installed. Next to your rotating switch for your headlights, is there a little switch that looks like a fader switch? If so you have the vacuum adjust already.

the 500E euro lights are far superior to any other w124 euro light. Are you still interested in this group buy? I am trying to wrap things up within a week or two. For conversion rates look at www.xe.com also I would need you to send me funds in US dollars, and also the easiest way might be through paypal if you have that because it will do the conversion for you.

Let me know.

Omegabenz,

I would be interested in the 500E euro headlights and the vacuum switch kit. Are you still in the process of working the buy?

Update as of 630pm January 7, 2004

4 people have paid, and I have recieved funds. That includes In order of payment

1. captnruff 500E fourm wanting nonfacelifted 500E euro lights with vacuum adjust kit

2. TomS from mercedesshop wanting facelifted lights 94 E500 euro lights (w/ fog), turn signals, and vacuum adjust kit

3. dieseldiehard from mercedesshop wanting non facelifted lights, with vacuum adjust kit

4. Cannoli from 500e forum wanting non facelifted 500E euro lights with vacuum adjust kit


Cashier's check was faxed and mailed for friday delivery
5. Rammunus from mercedesshop wating nonfacelifted 500E euro lights with vacuum adjust kit.


There are some about 3 stragglers that have "mailed checks" but I have not seen them yet. Since we have 5 people here we have nothing to worry about. Please check to make sure everything is correct. I would like to place the order monday, so the cut off on recieving funds to me is Friday, This friday, January 9th, 2004, but the end of business 5pm MST GMT-7.

PUMA has 2 sets of facelifted E500 euro lights and 3 sets of 500E euro lights in stock right now. They are expecting another shipment Jan 20, 2004. So we can probabaly go up to 10 people if need be, but since the euro vs dollar has gone up the price will remain the same.

All of the vacuum adjusts are taken. They came in today with my order from Germany, so if anyone wants that in a future time or you want the lights now, and then the vacuum adjust later thats fine. I will order two spares right away, and then we can go from there.

Keep in mind, This group buy price is a great deal since PUMA will have to raise its rates after the group buy because of the currency exhange, so it is great that you are taking advantage of this deal.

Thanks to those that have participated.

Austin
