If I recall correctly, the EC article source their lights from Ron's Parts.
 The difference they mentioned was one of manufacturer--the replacements are
Bosch while OEM was Hella.  Functional differences unknown--if both put out
the same Euro-pattern light with H4 bulbs, I would expect similar performance
(but don't quote me!)  

I've seen similar H4 performance from 7" round (Rabbit), 4"x6" rectangular
(4000--get it clean juice!) and my 200's Hella lights.  btw, the pattern on
the U.S. spec '92 Subaru Legacy is very similar to the Euro-pattern H4
lights--I don't know what  bulb they use, though it could be an H4--I
understand H4 bulbs are now sold in the US as an H9005 or some such
