W126 Euro Lights- swap for W123s?

I visited my favorite upullit a few days back and snatched a pair of W126 euro headlights (these are Bosch, with ports for vacuum adjust). Only problem is one (passenger side ) has a BB hole in it, But that can be fixed for about $40 (new lens available at and others). When I went to pay for the lights I was somewhat unpleasantly surprised at the price, considering I would have another $40 ahead of me to make them right.

Since this yard has a 30 day no-hassle return policy, what the hey, I bought them and decided to figure out what to do with them. (They might end up getting them back- to be crushed if I can't think of anything better)

I don't have a W126 , and my prospects for getting one at this point are pretty slim.

I could always hawk them on ebay, but I thought I would toss them out here first to see if anyone has a set of W123 euros that they would like to swap. Or a cheap passenger side lens. Or...?

Thumbs up

I have a driver W123 Euro lamp with vac parts... just the one lamp and vac parts. If that would be of interest, let me know. Money can make up for the poor lamp you have currently.

Also, do the ones you have contain clear or yellow fog reflectors?

I'm not a doctor, but I'll have a look.
