Please advise what you think of these... do you recommend such items? They'd make my car look much better than the existing stock ones.

Any reason NOT to get these?

Euro lights are a MUST![8D] US spec units are dreadful things, the grill is a matter of taste but plenty of ppl like the "many slatts" look.

Since you don't believe the US ones are great, what is a good online source to purchase the European ones at a reasonable cost?

Thanks!

Hi,
the better head lights are made by Bosch or Hella.
There are cheaper ones around made in the Far East.
Understand glass much thinner. Have Hella head lights
in my car. Would touch any others.

here's a website for an import company that handles the grills, headlights, and corner markers...they look great, they get good feedback from buyers on e-bay, but there not OEM quality...not bad though.

Nonsense. I've recounted many times how my Bosch original corner lense cracked in my hand during a simple change, while my Italian(?) made Eurolights on my 190E look awesome and GREATLY improved performance. The plastic feels just like the same ole brittle plastic Bosch used, and construction was substansially the same as the Bosch USDM lights I removed.
