When talking about older Volvos (240/740/940), the euro (or E-code) lights have glass lenses and metal reflectors while the US lights often had plastic lenses and plastic reflectors. The advantage of E-code lights is that the beam pattern is usually sharper and the components can take the heat of higher wattage bulbs (assuming you upgrade the wiring too). The disadvantage of US spec lights is that the plastic lenses turn yellow or foggy, and because of the plastic, they don't produce the "best" light. E-code lights are an improvement even if you don't increase the wattage.quote:
