W210 E55 fenders are different than the non-AMG ones.

I knew a member on here that had a non-AMG rear fender installed on his car after a crash repair and he had rubbing issues. Something to think about.

Good to know. I might have to get fenders from a 2002 E55 then instead of the ones from the E320 I have now that are stretched on.

FWIW, I'm running W210 E55 monoblocks on my lowered E320 wagon and have no issues with rubbing.

You could also get an aftermarket front bumper that looks like an e55's that will work with your fenders.

Are you trying to make it look like a '00+ post-facelift model? Headlights, quarter panels, mirrors, and even A-pillars are different from '99 and lower. The hood slopes down more on the 00+. Body panels from the '99 AMG and standard models are mostly interchangeable, but the fenders were rolled on the AMG assembly line in Affalterbach.

No not exactly. I'm just doing a cheap repair with the body parts available. I'm just looking for helpful info like this, about the small differences between the w210 models that will help me on this custom project.

I have seen some front conversions work with trimming and massaging. There are a few out there who have even grafted W212 front bumpers on. It apparently is actually easier than finding a '98/99 E55 front, though there is one for pickup in California for only $400 right now. Even has grilles and fog lenses.https://www.ebay.com/i/173868704196?chn=ps

I do not believe a W210 1999 will accept a hood, trunk or probably front bumper cover newer from 2000 and newer. Your front bumper blade might only accept 1999 front cover. Be certain front cover MATCHES 2000 and newer fender profile or the connection point/fasteners will interchange. Head lamps might be different profile at the bumper cover
E-55 Monoblok should not be any problem w/ rubbing UNLESS the fenders do not fit from 2000 to 1999
You mention "cheap" repair(????).
1999 parts from an E320 will fit and be less expensive. No only cheaper but the time and cost of converting might be very NOT cheap.
AMG is a trim/engine/wheel package not really body parts. The expense will be a loaded front bumper cover; $750 to $1200 plus paint
