I read on this forum some time ago that those so called "xenon" bulbs were merely hallogen jobs with a special coat over them and that they are less, not more, illuminating due to it. Check back a few months and you'll see.

I think around the same time someone wrote in explaining the the conversion for a 140 was very expensive, let alone for a 126.

Besides there is a point where a car has to retain its original technology isn't there? Putting xenons in a 126 smacks of putting an airbag in a fintail.

Why not just replace the globes with higer wattage jobs? I removed the dodgy 55/60w H4s on my 123 and put in 90/100w H4's and haven't squinted since!
