I checked this site out & have 2 questions. 1 do these fit in the 87 sec?
I agree, they look like a good, more modern lighting solution...

However, 5X7 light units will NOT fit our Gen2 US spec headlamps. As you can see in the pic, the Gen2 US headlights, rather than rectangular, have more of an angled parallelogram configuration.

:/

Please help with definitions and model #s. What are Gen 1 headlights? Which JWS LED sealed beams would fit in them? I will be starting with completely stock U.S. sanctified car and headlights...
Pre 1986 W126 headlight assembly with the rectangle sealed beam LED replacement lights.

A big thing for night driving is having a new windscreen. I only know this from my other car, not 126. I've no vision problems but it was a hard car to drive at night. Somewhat fuzzy windscreen although it didn't look it. Just years of tiny marks. New windscreen made it fine at night.
Windscreen cleanup with cerium oxide cleaner and a drill pad did wonders ,bloom went away .
