[200q20v] 100 (non turbo) euros vs. 200 (turbo) euros (type 44)

Considering that a round lens and reflector will have the best performance
out of your standard parabolic reflector lamps, the absolute best
would only be attained by doing something like fabricating custom headlamp
buckets and mounting quad round lamps, like the older BMWs. I would imagine
that doing this along with a custom fabbed surround for the lights would
be prohibitively expensive, but that's the way to go.

What would be even more impressive would be to take the headlamps out of
the current E39 5 series with the CELIS lighting, fab a custom housing
for the 200 and voila- Xenon HID projector lamps with kewl "angel eye"
city lights and H7 high beams. I'm sure it can be done, but again,

So what is the verdict on the euro comparison? 100 or 200? I imagine the 100
lamp would be better as the light is closer to a round shape than the 200's.

Then again, I'm soooo happy with my 200 euros that I can't complain one bit.

Someone help Chris (jordanvw at aol.com) and get his 200 lights set up
he's complaining about poor performance out of the relayed 200 e-code lamps.
