I bought the DEPO lights for my 87 Wagon. I couldn't be happier with them. I cannot tell them apart from the Hella set that i have on my 87 Sedan. They even have the vacuum height adjusters. They were about $200 for the pair. The blank plates for underneath were $16 a side from the dealer. The 6 prong plugs I got from my parts car.

Well, I'm getting perturbed with the lack of luminosity of my current lights. to see anything I need to keep running the fog lights which I hate to do because I have no Idea where to get the right bulbs for them since it's not a standard bulb to get... I would like to try a pair of Euro's..

The fog light bulb is available at NAPA, Autozone, Advance Auto, K-Mart, others.

Agreed that the stock US lights are dismal and the US yellow fogs aren't much help. Euro lights are worth the $$ in my experience although I have never had aftermarket I can't help you there.

If you buy the DEPO lights @ least pick up a set of Bosch lenses.. the Chinese bits don't throw the light Nearly as well...

Don't have the link handy but the DOT did a Lengthy test of DEPO vs Bosch...conclusion
being the DEPO lenses as good as they look @ not engineered/manufactured properly.

EDIT:

Found the link
