W114 Euro Headlight Swap

Looking to trade my North American headlights for a pair of euro ones in the same condition. Comes with chrome ring and are near mint condition. Natural yellowing on the outer lens due to UV radiation.

FYI:
I noticed that my car has the orange lens from the inside removed to give it an overall white look (no orange bottom). It has orange bulbs. The orange inserts were in the trunk of my car when I bought it. One has a piece broken off. So perhaps that's why they aren't used.

I think the full glass euros must seem like higher quality.

W114 Euro Headlight Swap

Sorry no good ones. My bezels are crazed and hazy. It's generally the same look, but slightly different I guess.

There's the orange insert in with the spare parts.

I guess that's a viable "Plan B" if I can't fine Euro headlights. Thanks!
