Talking 126 Euro Light Intall - Pics

Enough here have emphasized the dramatic improvement, both in safety and in style, that can be gained by installing euro lights. I was expecting a lot, and got even more. Here's a few pics I snapped during the install:

old lights


new lights

What are you doing with the old US lights. Are you parting them out? I need doors.

hey chris

i couldn't get the links to work either.

dmorrison

you don't need new headlight doors, you need new or used euro lights.
it's the ONLY way to see in these cars.

afmcorp

www.adsitco.com is in muncie, they have new and used euros. also they accept trade in on u.s. lights

oem authentic european lights are NOT inexpensive.
your car was expensive too [when new]

if you are keeping your car, they are worth it.

they offer a 100.00 credit for your old lights if they are in decent shape,also call them they sell USED euro lights

btw don't you have some coming from europe?

[afmcorp lives in the same state where adsit co is]

yes i do

muncie is ne of indy i'm way nw of indy. muncie is only 1 1/2 to 2 hrs from me. when i do my euros i may just go see what they have used.

i found 2 outlets selling what i figure are import knockoffs from taiwan. but both fotos look funny not clear like the bosch hellas look. to me they look totally clear. so i hesitate in buying them until i can find out how they really look.

hi goldenbear

hello again

i've been looking at all the fotos i've been saving with euro lites and most every one has a dark tint to them. i'm not making any negative comments i'm trying to draw picture of how a real bosch would look compared to a knockoff. either i've got all knockoff fotos or there's not much of a difference on the surface. don't know about the rest of the lite. so i'm beginning to think as long as it has a glass lense nobody will likely know the difference.

i've also been reading about the wiper issue. it seems the only description that is not contradicted is that the shafts are longer and the blades are shorter. so it sounds like shorten the shafts and if you want get the longer wipers. i know about the reverse swing direction but i don't see a real problem.

just a couple of thoughts
tks
