I don't know, but I know a man who will ...
Roger Galvin, our UK membership secretary, maintains a 200QT as his daily
runabout. He followed me home (at least, he tried to - I was kind and slowed
down a little) from a recent area meeting and I'm sure his lights are as good
as mine - clean and bright but not dazzling. Externally, they look pretty
The Cibie/Hella timeline is the other way round - the _early_ four-headlight ur-
quattros in the UK used Hella lights. The "sloping grill" cosmetic changes
were accompanied (according to my parts fiche) by a change to Cibie.
I'm thinking of changing my lights. If this Pikes Peak silliness actually
_happens_, I'll need LHD lenses. I thought of buying replacement Cibies
complete with lenses and the power adjustment feature. The lenses are
compatible with my existing ones - back in the UK, I can just swap the lenses
and keep the power adjustment. The loom already has the connectors behind the
lights and dashboard.
