    the one that are listed on EBay are not same as Lamborghini use. Google up or check Lamborghini latches OEM on Ebay that goes for $700 and up. and if you can find a set of pre 74 latches out W 115 and W 116 MB buy as many you can , they are very rare . good luck.

    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    Meanwhile back at the thread (Real??? Latches) Look around. You can still find the older Mercedes Latches which replicate the Lamborghini latches to a "T". IMO, they look and work well. If you use the "inside mounted" latches, you will have to locate your door inner at least 1/4" rearward in the door cavity to latch properly or the striker will have to be mounted forward the same distance. A striker with a 1/4" shim under it looks kinda crappy. Be sure to check your latches before mounting as the driver's side has the auto lock setup. (Lock your doors when open and then close them and the passengerside will unlock itself, if I remember correctly. It's a senior thingy.) ;D
