W114 Coupe Headlight Opinion - Sealed beam vs. H4 Motorcycle units
I recently replaced the headlights in my 108 250S with H4/H1 lights that I found at the junkyard. I really like the improvement.
I've had a pair of like new Hella H4 Motorcycle headlights that I got at the junkyard out of a BMW 2002. Tonight I figured I would stick them in and solicit opinions.
Here's 4 pictures. Note that when I took the picture of the H4, I did not have the surround properly on the headlight surround, nor did I have the bottom latch on the headlight. So the beam might be a little high because of that....
Note that the 4 pictures are
1. Left sealed beam
2. Right motorcycle H4
3. Low beam pattern
4. High beam pattern
