Those were the same brand I put on my 126. The ones I bought came with the vacuum adjusters, and I bought the adjusting wheel off the classifieds here.

Want to save some money and time? Don't worry about the vacuum adjusters. You will play with them for a week and then never touch them again.

They look just like the ones I bought, but not from Katmac. I paid 180, shipping included, but did not get the bulbs and other goodies with it. No vacuum adjusters either, just a couple of knobs on the back. The worst part was the plug pinout on the light did not match the car side. So I had to figure out which pin goes with which light and reconfigure the car side plug accordingly. They do work well though= bright. I'm satisfied with them, but if I had it to do over, I would look for a set of Bosch or Hella units.
