Headlight upgrade

Hello all. I have a 1988 260E I would like to upgrade to euro headlights. I can find little for the 260e but many for the 300e. Are these units the same between cars? Thanks

The same for 86-93 for US models. Depo is a reasonable surrogate for Bosch or Hella. TYC much less so.

The Depo lights are available on eBay for less than $200 and well worth the cost. I have used both genuine Bosch and the Depo lights and there isn't enough of a difference to justify the higher cost for the Bosch.
