Is 1998 model compatible with 1999?

Hi SLK people, i have a question to you all and your expertise.
I have acrashed R170 in my backyard. The front part needs to be almost fully replaced. I have found a 1998 R 170 that's crashed in the back. Do you think i can use its parts for my car? I heard that the radiator (water) changes thru the models. I ll be happy if u guys can help!

thanx!

p.s. we're in the middle of an eartquake hit here, i hope my house doesnt crumble on the SLK. It would be a "lose-lose"

It should be a good match, there may be a problem if you swap an ecu from one car to the other.

Do they both have the same engine? I think the radiator and hoses may be different between a 230 and 320.

Mine is a 200kompressor. i have been warned about the radiator. the guy who owns the pieces is checking what car it is that the pieces come from, either in terms of year ( should be 1998) and engine. So the water radiator might be an issue....thanx
