try this place

I think they have the most affordable red/smoked taillights. Ask for Ken; he's a really cool guy, very helpful and can cut you a deal. I got my DEPO euros there for I think $250 flat I am thinking about either all-red or smoked taillights for my black '90 190E. I'm just deciding which color would look better on a black car. I like the smoked lights because I am thinking of giving my car a "black theme" look, this will include smoke corner lights too. But then on the other hand, I am thinking about the all-red taillights. It gives the car a somewhat modern look. I will use clear corner lights with the red taillights. What say you?

What color is your car?

smoked tail lights

On a black car, the red or the black would look really good. My car is the dark blue that from a distance of 20 feet, it looks black. I have the chrome fender flares and the chrome rocker panels. It looks really good considering all the chrome. I am going to use clear corners with the smoked tails. I have found a set on ebay the bid is $175, but I really don't have the extra cash to go the tails right now. But, at the same time, I don't want to loose these either. If I could find someone to sell them at a decent price, I would wait until tax season to buy the tails. I have checked at the place you mentioned and their sight does not list any for the 126 chassis. I might give them a call to see if they have any. Scott

I'm not sure about the 420sel, but I can get smoked tails, clear corners, euro headlights, etc. for my 190E at

I find their web site exceptionally difficult to navigate, but I have one of their printed catalogs that is fantastic. You can order one at their web site.

Good luck,
