Re: Bosch DRL's


Thanks for the info on the Bosch DRL's.  Yours is the only response I
got.  I have a few more questions.

I'm currently running 55/100w 9004 bulbs in the US OEM headlights of
my 1987 5KCSTQ. (two lite HI/LOW setup)  I believe the 4KQ has four
headlights, right?The Bosch DRL's aren't HI/LOW are they?  There
appears to be only the single 55w bulbs in the package and a single
toggle switch.

I have two brackets under the front bumper that look like they will 
fit the Bosch lites ok.  Apparently a previous owner took whatever 
lites he had mounted off when he sold the car.
