reuse H3 bulb on Euro headlights?

I installed the Euro headlights on my '91 300E ....

Installed the Philips Vision Plus H4 for the hi/lo beam (headlights)

Can I reuse the H3 (fog light) bulb from the old US headlights on the new Euro headlights?

Thanks!

Bobby

Yes, you most definitely could.

I did that to mine. The bulbs are original I believe but I don't care they don't get used too often...

If you look at one of my other posts there is a website where you can get yellow H3's. I just got my pair and they are not as yellow as the original but they work fine. Look for "euro headlight question" in this section.

Real Euros have H3s in the foglights, that's the inner part of the lamp nearest the radiator grill.
