RE: mercedes benz euro headlights help
Getting UK E-codes, or any units for RHD countries is not a good idea. The lenses for RHD cars throws the beam on the left side, high and to the left . . . right into oncoming traffic for LHD roads.
Bosch was OEM supplier for Mercedes, while Hella provided equivalent quality replacements. The $250 or so units you see on Ebay are either Depo or TYC units made in Taiwan (lighter plastic and smaller gauge wiring)that are "OEM-like" and commonly used by body shops and repair centers as low cost replacements. Some of them don't have the vaccum adjust system built in, while others do.
