True about the wattage! The improvment is in the Euro's reflector/lens system. Lots less scattered light, and a very tight beam pattern on the Euros relative to the US lamps. I tried the "+35" stock wattage bulbs in the US lamps before going with the Euros - just gave me a little brighter scatter and marginally brighter low beam, otherwise a waste of money on the MB US headlights (these bulbs made a bigger difference in my '88 Acura Legend lamps than they did in the '87 MB - better reflector/lens on the Acura). My next step will be upgrading the stock wiring and installing relays as in the "Star" article (or in more detail at the web site, above).
