Neither of my UK/RHD cars  did.
Wasn't that a 6.9 specific feature, to go along with the suspension?

I may be wrong here, but I think it was more common on R107's.
They are used on W126 also

It was just an option. One of my low-spec 280's also has it. Problem is I never knew, till it was too late, and I had already stocked up on regular NOS head lights. Can't be buying yet a pair of vacuums at this point. _ or I would have grabbed this one.

6.9 cars weren't offered vacuum assisted headlights because of the hydraulic suspension......or any W116/R107/W126 that had hydraulic suspension or rear leveling.  Why?  because it would have been redundant.  The vacuum assisted headlights were in place to compensate for sag in the rear of the car when loaded.  Since cars with hydraulic suspension and/or self leveling in the rear automatically corrected their ride height when loaded down, having to adjust the headlights wasn't necessary.  Granted, none of this is to say that someone couldn't have installed vacuum assisted light leveling on a 6.9 or the like, or even specifically requested it when ordering the car new,  but my point was to bring to light that the 6.9 isn't supposed to have the vacuum assisted lighting.  On;y spring suspended cars were offered the option.

https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/neuwertiger-mercedes-reservekanister-bellino-7l-mit-zubehoer/523233899-223-8636

Bellino spare fuel tank. Not super cheap, not super expensive, but affordable, and seemingly mint condition. I'd say he'll accept 75 euros.

This nice to see, but he'd better do something with his prices.  They can be bought new/re-manufactured from Mercedes for only $253 UDS each.  He's asking $281 USD for each.

What I read is that he supplies 8 of them for this price, after receiving 8 old ones.

That's concerning, too. haha  Almost too good to be true, but I'll not look a gift horse in the mouth.  ;)

Stan, did you happen to see this?  His prices are out of line on a lot of things, but he has some very neat things.

That seller is nothing but trouble. I'd suggest to steer well clear. I've dealt with them before.
