Re: Eurolights-battery post

After putting on my euro lights, on my 1991 200, I was left with an extra
parking light socket.  I found that the 1989 Audi 90 front parking lights
are dual filament, so I got a pair, hooked up the wiring, and now have both
turn signals and parking lights in the stock turn signal on the bumper.
Easy conversion when the headlights are out.  The best thing to do is get
the Audi 90 socket and about a foot of wiring so you have plenty of wire to
splice in.  This makes replacing the bulb easy from the outside.
