Re: Euro headlights for U.S. V8's [re: steve B]

US headlights are 2 peices; clear corners are a seperate plastic piece (not glass). The mirror reflectors inside and the 'ribbed' glass do not allow the light to shine as brightly. The US lights use P9005 and P9006 bulbs, where as the European headlights use H3 and H4 style bulbs. These bulbs have different connectors, so we have to do some rewiring to make the Euro lights work in our cars. Also, European V8s have a switch in the dash to adjust the headlight beam up and down (so if you are driving fast, you can focus your lights further off in the distance), the US headlights are fixed in one spot.

You can see the differences here:
