They're probably Depot lights. IMHO price reflects quality. Cheap ecodes will be better then yee olde DOT lights, but comeon, you have an S-Class. Find a set of used OEM lights

Incorrect. It is indeed for the whole unit (2 of them). Read the listing.

Not a bad price either if they are of decent quality....

This seller confuses me
"Mercedes-Benz W126 euro headlight lenses 300SD 350SDL"
and
"You are bidding on a pair of brand new european spec headlights."

if it's the complete headlights i'll be pissed because i just bought a pair of them from the same seller a coupla months ago for like 99+40 shipping. they are indeed depo (not depot), and not great quality--my two gripes were a lot of tiny bubbles lodged in the lenses, and the plugs were made upside down, such that you have to twist the plug to plug it into the bulbs. i tried taking the plugs apart, cutting them and reinstalling the wires backwards, but you can only put the wires in one way. you get what you pay for, and you can't go wrong with the price

Ian,

I did look at those you left link for on Ebay.

That looks like allot of work compared to the amount of work to just adapt the sealed beams ( if you have OMM, and poor light quality) over to bright lites similar to europe has.

I did the seal beam change over to to euro style light and only had to fuss with the light part and not all the trim.

I'm happy. I have 3 times the light I had before. $100 both sides bout which included +30bulbs. Light is not that blue light but nice a white.

I got mine from Rallylites. You can search my posts for details.

I called them first to get staight on what I needed and pricing.

It is a kit not "kits". ie One kits does both side. You pay like $106 for both sides including upgraded bulbs.

I told the guy I did not want to look Blueish going down the road and I did not want to get pulled over for looking illegal ie too bright.

They are made by Hella, top shelf quality. You'll be happy with them I'm sure.

The ebay listing picture looks like Euro 123 lights with the little louvers across the bottom, am I wrong?

Ian,

I still have a pair of Bosch euro lights packed and ready to ship sitting on the back porch from when we talked way back before Xmas. If you're still looking for lights, drop me line.
