Euro lights

I'm not running the stoneguard because I did read sometime ago that some
listers had issues with it on their euro's.  And I am running the 80/100's.
I recommend these bulbs with a wiring harness.  I have heard that you can go
with euro's and some Xenon bulbs which will put out the light without the
current draw on your system.  This will reduce your costs but you still have
to wire them up.
	This is my second set of Euro's on a car.  My first was an '89 Jetta
16v, 80/100's and no relays.  They were bright, but not compared to the
brightness of the one's on my 200.

My $0.02,

The stock wattage isn't bad and is far better than stock - but the 80/100's
are truly awesome. Stonegard says don't use their product with 80/100's as I
recall due to heat build up and possible cracking of the lens.
