: : Did anybody converted front lights to Euro type in E34?
: : I would like to know if this makes any difference, how much this costs and who sells the kits?
: : I understand that they are no DOT approved and there is nothing "magic" in them but I have heard that they put more light on the road rather than to the air (US version)?
: I live in Thailand and my 95 525i E34 came with Hella projection Euro lamps. I would rather have U.S. style lamps. The Euro lamps focus the light too tight and up and to one side. U.S. lamps seem to have a more broad beam and to me seem better in really dark areas.
Ok, I'm puzzled.
First, Bekkers Imports has the Euro Hella kits for $560 for all four lights.
Second, are you sure your lights are aimed properly and/or are your foglights on too? I have both the plain foglight and the projector foglight (one each side) and can tell you those make a big difference for throwing light to the side of the car (plain is good to the side while projector is more of a driving light)--also what wattage bulbs are we talking about?
