| LATE & EARLY W210 E Class Models
Understanding the Differences
| Before purchasing your parts please make sure you know your cars build date
as there are differences between early and late (facelift) W210 models.
Some parts fit both early and late, while others are specific to either revision.
The picture on the left shows both Early and Late W210 fronts, the easiest way to
find out if yours is late is to reference this image. The mirrors can also be used
to distinguish the two revisions, with the late models having blinkers in the mirrors.
Early Models were built 1996 to 10/1999
Late models were built 11/1999 to 8/2002
