W201 Euro Headlight Bezel same as NAM?

Hey folks, trying to figure out if my W201 Euro headlight lens retainer is the same pice as the NAM spec? The lights were delivered from Germany with the tabs that act as the mount for the lower body trim piece broken off. It appears that this piece is part of the headlight lens retainer on the Euros, can a fix as simple as the NAM piece be at hand? BTW just for the record, we are talking about the lower, inner tabs...a few of you Euro light owners may be familiar Thanks! Clip

I doubt they are the same since the NAm headlights don't have vacuum adjust or city lights, also the lighting units look more deepset in the NAm headlights. I'm in the same boat, paid just under $300 for some used Bosch headlights only to find the trim tab had been broken off the passenger side light. The seller posted pictures with the good headlight positioned to cover up the missing tab! Are both yours damaged?

Bosch part number gives no search results, but I found the Mercedes part numbers on eBay: A0028268590 (passenger side) / A0028268490 (driver side)

Turns out both the NAm and Euro style lenses are available from europartsdirect.com for $75. I just ordered one from these guys and the trim tab was broken off...FML.
Comparing the stock photos of each, definitely not the same but you can remove and swap the frames to make the Euro glass fit on a NAm headlight -- check out this thread.
