Re: more euro lights - light pattern question
Why not switch bulbs from left to right? I have had some variation in
manufacturers and this may be something to consider. Also, have any of you
listers tried the new NARVA Xenon charged bulbs. I received a flyer from
Blaufergnugen this last week and they have really nice things to say about
this new product.
