Euro headlights 560SEC

Anyone done a conversion on a US 560sec to euro spec headlights?

I've searched as best that I could throughout the forum for information on wiring for this swap with no luck. I'm not concerned with the wipers or the trim panel below the headlights, found plenty of information on that. Much more interested in how to wire them up, the pin-outs, if you will for the appropriate color code wire.

I have a 1990 560sec that I'm attempting to swap in the Euro spec C-126 headlights and I have compared it to my 1983 300sd with euro conversion, they are nowhere near the same.

If someone has a diagram, I would appreciate it.

Guess no one who has read this, has done this. An answer to my question is no longer needed. Have finally resolved this on my own to my satisfaction. It may not be correct, however it does fully function as needed, so I'm satisfied. Thanks anyway.

that's probably a good idea...

Wish I had considered that sooner before I finished putting everything back together. I'd have to do some disassembling now to put together the information. I'll consider doing that for a future project when I'm sufficiently bored with nothing better to do!
