Fog Lights

I tried the search but since I couldn't differentiate amongst all the forums the volume of information was too high.

Anyway, I have a 2003 320 and have had a broken glass on the left side (US drivers) since I got the car a couple of years ago. I was looking to replace the assembly but the pictures I see for the 'standard' car are rectangular while mine are essentially round (maybe a little egg shaped).

When I look at pictures of US 320's from 2003 they're all the shape that mine are but the parts lookup says that this is an AMG styling package. Mine isn't an SLK32 it's an SLK320.

What's up?

i believe you see round round round because you cannot see behind the bumper openings which are round round round . Other members will chime in and confirm or dispute that

those part numbers and pics are from your vin number, your car info

I'm going to go with the flow here and guess that you (and soon enough, the others) will be right right right.

Thanks very much!

Yes, your pics are non-amg facelift, with a sort D shape that only looks oval through the bumper cut out. You can turn your wheels all the way and easily peak in there to verify/reach the two screws to remove. BTW, these were used on many models, so there are lots of aftermarket ones, and the original frosted lenses are kind of out of fashion. Even if you pay a ton for oem, a single one will probably look different than the other one that has been further sandblasted over time. You can get just the oem-type dull lens for about $25 each, but for $15 more you can get a matching pair of sparkling new, chrome-showing, bulbs-included, aftermarket assemblies. I love mine and found them to be oem quality. Here's just one example of the sort I mean 2001 07 Mercedes Benz W203 C Class Crystal Clear Fog Lights OE Style Pair Set | eBay

I have a 2003 slk230, took the bumper off a while back for repairs. Took one of the fog lights out, it's somewhat rectangle.
What you see is what shows through the oblong cutout.
Jeff is correct on this one.
