Probably not... 
They're VERY rare and command some money. New they're like $300+.

As installed on a 601 I've never been really happy with them as they don't turn 
on until the engine is quite hot. I've thought about sneaking a lower temp

I think your options are to get and try one from a 601 in a W201 
- 190D, or
replace the entire fan with an electric fan or two mounted where 
the fan
shroud is now. Then you can control it electrically all you want
