Default FOUND!! New "old" lights

What I mean by that, is that after almost thirty years, I have found the auxiliary lights, that I used to have, but unfortunately, until now, have been unable to find, ever since Wagner bought Cibie Lighting. They are the Cibie 175 for driving lights, and the Cibie’ 195 clear for fog lights. In the past decades, because I do a lot of driving, I have spent literally thousands of dollars on lighting, but never came close to the performance of Cibie’s. Only Hella came a bit closer, but nowhere near as good. I knew that someplace on this planet, there HAD to be those lights, and with the help of a friend of mine, we found them in France, brand new, still in the original boxes. I received the 175’s yesterday, and will get the 195’s next week. What makes these lights so spectacular, is their design, especially their fluting. The 175’s specs are: 6000’ reflective range, and 11 degree vertical and 16 degree horizontal fluting. The 195 fogs have a 500’ reflective range and are 10 degrees vertical and 92 degrees horizontal. With these fogs, when properly mounted and aimed, as per Cibie’, you can safely do between 45 and 55 mph in pea soup fog. I know because I used them on my wife’s Benz, and believe me when I was told this by a BMW owner, I was skeptical. But they are fantastic. The 175’s basically replace the sun after dark.
