Hi, I’m looking fro a bonnet for my wife’s C180 coupe that’s she had a mishap in. I have found a bonnet off a W203, but our car is a WDB203. Can anybody tell me if they are the same?

Thanks for reading.

Malcom I’m afraid they aren’t the same. The bonnet grill intrusion are different lengths therefore will not match up with the bumper grill surround.
Thanks all the same

i thought a saloon was a sedan, and a wagon an estate, hence why i was always baffled why the saloons had w prefixes and the estates had s prefixes ie w210 = e class saloon, s210 = e class estate.

or is it just me thats baffled by this?
