Try measuring and possibly using 80's era Volvo 740 foglights. You can still get them new.

According to Russ, the lefthand lights will fit and install in the right side. The light pattern will be incorrect, but until I try it, I can't say how bad that would be or if it can be adjusted away.

The installation points for the LH and RH lights look the same, as do the Euro lights.

The glass on the Euro one is almost flush with the frame at its' farthest out and is concave. The Merkur light sticks out beyond the metal frame and looks much more susceptible to road debris than those from Europe.

The part number for the Euro light is 15201 instead of 15200. The prefix changes with the year apparently. They were used on the Grenada/Scorpios and the MkII Sierras.

Not on the top of my list right now, but I've seen some people put a plastic flexible, sticky covering on their fog lights to protect them a little bit from stones and other road debris. Any idea where to get this?
