RE: NEED HELP --new Benzo owner here... need some direction.
Good car, under rated actually...
There are (2)basic options on your headlamps, the actual Euro OE lamps from Bosch, or aftermarket replacements. Katmac.com has the "better" of the aftermarket units from a maker called Depo, beware of anything cheaper since there are some bad ones out there. Bosch can be had from Adsitco.com.. Depo's are generally 1/2 the price of Bosch, but sometimes Adsitco has specials, or call Adsitco to ask if they have any returned/special's..
On corner lenses Depo makes a acceptable corner, again beware of other cheapies..
I would NOT recommend eBay, both Katmac with Depo or Adsitco with Bosch can handle what you need.
Performance has "stealth" bulbs (or other net sources) which are bulbs which in off mode are silver/clear, and when lite they light up orange - which you use with clear lenses for a very clean look (as compared to off-orange bulb's inside a clear lense).
Check the 124 forum.
Have fun with your car - great car and great value - will run forever !
