That same seller sells them on ebay where yuo can prolly get em 30 dollars cheaper. They look nice and are Taiwanese if im not mistaken.

I have had mine for a while (from Katmac) but the knobs that you use to adjust the headlights do not work, as in you can't turn them. I don't know if they're too tight or what. I tried taking them apart and loosening the adjuster nut/spring but then it wouldn't go back together properly.

So just be careful what lights you buy.

I'm selling a BOSCH 126 pass side on ebay right now. If you can track down a driver's side, you'll be good to go!

I bought mine from Katmac (via his eBay auctions) and think they look great. I didn't have a problem adjusting them using the knobs as another poster mentioned.



There's another guy on eBay out of Hong Kong that sells a ton of lights, I'd avoid him like the plague. His ID is hk-plus.

All the best,

Bill

Another source

I got mine from Adsit. www.adsitco.com

They are Bosch and are very nice- there were two or three different grades of Euro lights made for the W123's. I'm very pleased with the lights and recommend Adsit. These appear to be the nicest ones- one piece of glass, and come with city lights- these are 4W bulbs- hook up to wire for the parking lights. They come ready to go- H4 and H3 bulbs included.

I also recommend covering the lenses with protective headlight covers. I got mine from Griot's Garage- the large size sheet is enough to easily cover both headlight lenses.
