or just newer lights with less sand pitting....

I have some detail shots of the Cibie H4/H1 lights I put in my 4ktq at

If you want to compare them with the Hella lights I think Blau has some

The Cibie lenses ARE replacable.. that's why I bought them.  They are a tad
more expensive.. although it is possible to grab them for a half way decent
price if you can source them from Europe and find a semi-cheap way to get
them to the states... planning a family vacation any time soon? ;-)
