Guys,

I've tried searching without any success to find out the date that the face lift model was first introduced for the W210 Estate?

Thanks
Gary

2002 SL500, 216 CL500, all fully loaded
Near enough 1999 when the 210026 became the 210226

Very late 99 on a V, although these are rare. Best to start looking on a W. Wing repeators moved to door mirrors is the easiest way to spot them. If you are looking for an E240, try to get a 2.6 version, launched in 2000.

Good advice - there are a number of earlier 2.4 240s around with the facelift body (I had one). There was a minor tweak facelift a couple of months after the main big one, that included the later engine. The only visual indication that I could see was a slight change to the gearshift lever!.

I'm asking as I'm still looking to buy a load cover for my 02 E220 and there is one on Ebay

The ads not the clearest and I've emailed the seller without a reply yet..as he says it's from a C Class then next a W210 :rolleyes:

w210 c class parcel shelf / load cover / dog guard in blue. came from 1999 e class estate. For the picture I can tell it's a E Class one but as I've already bought a Load Cover that was from a Pre face lift W210 I don't really want to have 2 of these in the garage
