Hello everyone-
Once again, I'm sitting here wondering what the difference between my euro spec E34 and the US spec version is. Yes, we all have the elipsoid assemblies with H1 blbs behind them. Just like in the US, there are good bulbs and bad ones; you really get what you pay for. I have xenon plazma in mine but Im not sure I like 'em. Too much blue-white, and not enough natural light. sure does look cool as hell though...
If anybody was looking to get the euro headlights, take a look at eBay Deutchland. There is always someone selling them there. Just ask if they will send to the US. If not, as a last resort, I will send through my APO from Holland. My guess is they will hook anybody up who asks.
I took a rock to my left low beam and need new glass. They won't sell just the glass itself but the whole assembly (both dipped and main beam), as well as the mounting assemby go for about 40 bones or so used here.
Check out the european ebays and also possibly the european yahoo's and locos's. They will be in different languages but all have search bars you can do searches with.
