I wonder if the source meant ... (and if so, I can't recommend ...). 200

I wonder if the source of "Depot" was actually "DJ Auto" -- maybe the spoken word was confused?

There is a "DJ Auto" version of the headlights, although I have had a lot of problems* with their lack of quality. They were so bad that when it came time to buy another set for a second car, I coughed up the (considerable) extra money to buy the genuine OEM "Volvo/Cibie" lights, and they are worth every extra penny.

~~~~~~~

* The three mounting studs pull out of their sockets, allowing the headlights to fall off the car (if not held on by their wiring) -- the V/C lights' studs are embedded in the plastic and cannot pull out.

The adjusters can't be finger-turned, as they're too stiff, without a small wrench or ratchet socket -- the V/C lights can be adjusted with finger-turning, nice and smooth.

The seal or dust cover over the H4's doesn't properly stay on -- the V/C's counterpart fits nice, keeping everything clean.

The reflector and front lens is a poor design, and although light-years ahead of the "plastic", USA/DOT headlights, is nevertheless blotchy and non-uniform (and therefore has distracting shadows) in its illumination pattern -- whereas the V/C's lights (better reflector and lens optical design) is very uniform and gives a better illumination across the field.
