Can one interchange Hella and Bosch lens?

I have a 94 e320 with the Bosch Euro lights on them. I have a cracked one and want to replace both with the E500 lens, however the lens are from Hella. Bekkers said they would fit. Anyone have any personal knowledge of this?
Thanks, Chris

The lenses are interchangeable, even the cheaper DEPO or TYC will swap, but you will probably see color differences in the glass. On the W201 headlights, I've noticed that the Hella glass looks slightly darker than the Bosch.

Thank you MTI, that is a relief!
Does anyone know if my fog lights will br greatly affected by the lens swap as I think the glass is a little different over the fog light area.
