Default DOT or E code

My Porsche has E-Code lights. European Code lights are brighter but cast a different light pattern than DOT lights. For 80 bucks for a E-code lens for anything is a steal.

The E-code headlights (European specification) also have additional modes that the North American headlight does not have. Note that because they are not DOT approved lights, these modifications are technically for off-road use only! For a more complete list of US vs. E-code differences, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ECE_Regulations
