It's good you got the chrome rims, too -- they look to be in nice shape.

RE: new headlights for the 108

yea, that was my thought also. I guess they just attach to the fender like my US ones. I am pretty pumped to get them, just need to find a fender now ...

RE: new headlights for the 108


How much would a used set run about and are they just
a simple "plug and play"?Also does the wiring need to be modified?

RE: new headlights for the 108

Just my opinion, but I never liked the look of Euros on a w114/115. I've always thought the U.S. lights looked better...

Here you go:

It should be more or less plug-and-play since the number of bulbs doesn't change, unlike on a W108.

RE: new headlights for the 108

Thanks!

I'm looking at the euro light and it looks like there
is an extra bulb compared to the ones I currently
have??

I think that's the fog lamp, the headlight and blinker wiring should be the same, but even if it isn't, I doubt there's much jerryrigging to be done.
