Here's a few more for you..!

Firstly, are the US ellipsoids really worse than the non-ellipsoids?

Secondly, how do the Euro ellipsoids compare?

Thirdly, is it possible to retrofit Euro ellipsoids to a car with US ellipsoids? Is it worth it?

And fourthly, which is better in terms of upgrades (i.e. the 9005 conversion can only be done on ellipsoids, right? Can this be done on both Euro & US ellipsoids? Are there any upgrades for non-ellipsoid lights?)


this may sound a little stupid, but please tell me the difference between eppsiloid headlights and normal and would my 1990 525 have eppsiloids?
