I replaced the bumper on my Mercedes SL but the fog lights don't fit, when did they change?

My car a 2002 Mercedes SL500 was stolen and crashed so I bought a salvage bumper and it fitted perfectly but the old spot lights didn't fit at all do you know what year Mercedes changed the spotlights on the SL models?

Mercedes-Benz updated the R230 generation SL in 2006 and again in 2008, so as you have an early car we would suggest that you need fog lights from a car produced between 2001 and 2005.

The nearside front fog light on my 2013 Vauxhall Corsa doesn't work, I have changed the bulb but still not working, will my car fail its MoT because of this?
My car has failed its MoT as there is only one rear fog light working. Does my Rover 75 have one or two rear fog lights?

Looks good and make you look rich. 2006 models with increased power vastly better cars. 388hp 500SL plenty fast enough and makes a nice noise.
