Ho hum.  Is the "thermostat" issue also dead?  I'm still waiting for 100c water 
temperature part numbers for any engine, and oil thermostat part numbers for 
the WR, GV, WX, MB, RR and KW engines?
However - whatever the resolution of the lights issue - let me confirm my 
standing offer (to any member of the list who happens to find themself in the 
English Midlands) of a ride behind my lighting system at any time.
(For preference - in the dark!)

The UK Club is a community, just like this list - I'm sure we could find a 
similar vehicle in Scotland, Cornwall, Northern Ireland or wherever for a 
visiting US list member.
Note that I'm _NOT_ saying that enhanced Euro lights are the best solution to 
every lighting problem.  They aren't.
IMO - they _ARE_ the best approach if you need good night driving light with an 
absolute minimum of external excrescences.  Don't try and rally or race behind 
these lights - you can do a _LOT_ better with a specific application.
And, as a final caution, if anyone tells you that Euros are _NOT_ as good as I 
say they are - make sure they know what they're talking about.  There seems to 
be considerable confusion as to exactly _what_ a Euro headlight actually is.
