Hi All,

thanks,

Do a search on Euro headlights or headlamps. Way better at stock wattage levels than more powerful bulbs for the US spec headlights.

if your car is a 'keeper' you should have euro lights so you can SEE at night.

the u.s. lights are so poor, imo they are almost dangerous. the beam pattern is awful.

go to http://lighting.mbz.org/tech/tech.html

read this. also do a search on 'euro' lights.

your choices are numerous.

they are the best money i have ever spent on ANY car.
