Sourcing W126 Euro Lights

I searched, but most of the sites recommended in threads no longer sell the Euro sets. I am looking to price, exactly, the cost on a new set. And not eBay. Need a price on Hella or Bosch. Anyone have a good current source?

I have seen very nice used sets on Craigslist that were reasonably priced. They do come up for sale now and then if you watch.

I waited for a good condition set of bosch ones on ebay. Kind of a gamble though, over the years the reflectors inside can de-silver, and there's no easy way to make a reapir.

Honestly I'd just go for a new set of Depo's. They are not quite the quality of a perfect set of Bosch lights (did Hella make W126 lights?), but they will be new and not pre-ruined.

Note that your current headlight wipers will not work with the euro lights.

Well this is for an insurance claim. I did fine on set of BOSCH for $740 and sent them that quote. Seems that, as new, they are getting a little harder to find. Which is expected.

As for the wipers, I thought they did work? Or do they not stick out far enough? On that front i am still looking for a write-up on the conversation. I know there is a good one out there since I read it once. But the others I found were dead links. If anyone has one, that would be great.

The euro motors rotate in the opposite direction, and have a larger swept area. Ones from a US spec 94 or 95 W124 might work, but I don't know if the shaft length would be correct.
