Euro lights will they fit?

These are said to be from a '72 220d will they fit my 250c. I really like the way they look, other than the two diff. turn signal colors. Thanks for any help.

They should.... without issues. There may be some small modification for the wiring.

They do have the wiring harness plug with them . I figured I could wire them into the original harness .

They will draw more power than your current system. Be aware that they can cause your amp light on the dash to glow red on high beam! The bulbs are brighter and the alternator for U.S. cars is set up for lower wattage.

So you think a alternator upgrade would be in order?

There are so many questions as to the wiring, etc. You are really getting into an area that is unfamiliar to me. Having had the Euro lamps in the past I would tell you that the USA version is NOT meant to have these. Good luck with the conversion.
