Cibie might just be the best but due to the size I doubt that the H4 will
give you the light you are getting out of the Euro's on your type 44. Those
lights are larger so I am assuming that is why they are giving out more
light than the 165mm (4x6) units. I have had similar experiences with the
quad lighting vs the Euro's on my type 85's. One note though is with the
highs on using 100 watt bulbs I get a tremendous amount of light out of the
quad setup on my '84'4kq. Better than the single bulb E code H4's I run on
the '87 4kq.

On this thought, I have the earlier style where you can just replace the
I currently have some fairly decent and one I think is an H4 halogen ( or
I just don't seem to be getting the light output I'd expect - OK but nothing
Eurolight setups on my Type 44's. I still need to relay the system and am
will help and is present action item.
I'm just wondering what are the best available lights I can install into
for low and high beams. I would think I could get some pretty decent
lighting if I just
put the best ones I can in there.
I don't want to install any eurolights since I like the look of the quad
setup and even had some custom integrated covers fabricated into the
ezels - asked if
any interest in these some time back, but folks did not want to pay what it
cost to have
them manufactured. I still have the molds, but they aren't cheap - the
Lucite is at
least $60 for the material then add the fabrication cost and they ended up
$150 for the set. Not making a plug to sell these because it would likely
end up being
more trouble than worth for me, but if enough interest, I'll look into it
My main question here is if there are some decent lights I can install into
quad light setup? Maybe what you are talking about below. Good source for

Alternatetively you can try to find the bezels for the rare 85 import UrQ
mated to the 85-87 Coupe/4K (okay 86 w/rt 4K's) grille but allowed the use
of 4 x 6 (100
mm x 150 mm) Euro H4 and H1 drop in headlights like what came in 82 - 84
you can find the bezels, the lamps are MUCH cheaper, and they'll have all of
lighting of the vaunted Euros (since they are Euros). FWIW, even same sized
beams outperform the "aero" US DOT lamps on the 85-up 4K's and coupes, they
work as lamps instead of glorified markers.
