Yes, it was horrible, same as the trapezoidal DOT H9004 units, that followed.

It is. If you still have this....hmmm...unusual idea, I have the complete 4-lite 
sys, that came off my '85 5000s. It was the last year that Uncle Sam was 
cannibalizing the the elegant front end of the Euro-100 by putting the DOT-kosher 
4-lite sys on it. I'd love to part with this set for a minimal sum of money.

>Are these lights decent?

See above.

>It would be a much better alternative to $$$ for Euro-lights (even from >Europe, 
where I'll be next month).

Nothing comes even close to the Euro-lites.
