Are you sure the US spec came with one white and one yellow each? I think it was two white round lamps with one being slightly larger than the other(as in the pic). Also if you notice, the background of the headlamp, it shows a grey background. I believe the original spec was a white (as in crystal) background. This headlamp somehow doesn't seem original to me.

It's that grey background on the headlight that got me thinking. Thanks for clarifying.

Hi there, I recently purchased a M-B 300D 1983 model with automatic gearbox. while the car is in excellent condition, the previous owner had misplaced the Owners Manual, so if anyone has a copy of the Owners Manual for this car, wd be most grateful for the same.
