I have a 1986 4000 S and as I've read they apparently have terrible headlights. However, in mine the headlights are quite bright. They have an orange sidemarker however on all the lenses there is a Hella stamp. Is that who made the stock headlights? How can I find out if they are stock or not?
See if the headlight has "H4" in the middle of the glass. If it does, it's a euro lamp. Also, if the glass "pattern" looks typical American (i.e. a whole slew of little rectangles or grids) then it's Amercian. I finally got euros and they make a HUGE difference. The DOT lights are awful. I think a couple of Maglights would do better! :)

I'll have fun doing the wiring so that I don't melt down the electrical system.
