116 Euro Headlight wiring question

I just got a set of Euro's for my 116, and the wiring is different. The car has two 3 prong connectors on each side (one for each headlight), and a black plastic connector that has wires in three of the four holes. The headlights have a place for one 3 prong connector, and all four of the wires are needed in the black connector. Does anyone have an idea of ow to hook up the lights?

Odd, I put euro lights in my 300Sd and just unplugged the black 4 pin connectors from the US lights, and plugged them into the euro lights.
That was it...

I was searching euro headlamps this morning on ebay and I say some "plug-n-play" harness adaptors. Have you tried Fastlane?

That implies that adapters are needed. I was hoping someone has had the exact experience that I have had, and will tell me EXACTLY what I need.
