    Those are some nice Marchals!
  4. Pair of NOS Marchal 722 702 Starlux IODE spot lights. Made in France. Perfect condition with perfect covers. 8" diameter, 4" deep lights use H2 bulbs (widely available). First offered in 1969 these have a production date of 1977. Powerful pencil beam spot lights with a range of 700 yards! Silver painted steel bodies with stainless steel bezels. Mounting bolt has 103 degrees of vertical adjustment. Hard plastic covers are the Scandinavian market design, which were superior to the mainland Europe/US market design which tended to crack (see last picture). These are big lights which mount best directly to the bumper or bumper bracket ( if bumper is removed ). You will not find better condition, better performing, period-correct lights for your car. $399 shipped from Pittsburgh to US addresses only please. Questions welcomed.
  5. NOS complete set of Marchal 810 yellow fog lights with soft & hard covers. Produced in 1976 to celebrate Marchal's sponsorship of the class-winning BMW 2002 at LeMans in 1975. $440 shipped within US only please. 5.75" lights have yellow glass, stainless steel bezels & black plastic housings.

  6. Pair of ORIGINAL soft vinyl Marchal covers. Very good USED condition. Very rare 190mm ( 7") size made specifically for 880 882 889, 780 782, or 'Fantastic' 660 662 760 762 models. One color design, part number 92900922. This style and size was reproduced but in a different vinyl and with a single drain hole. These are guaranteed originals. Elastic is excellent, original removable foam smells musty. Questions welcomed, what Marchal lights are your running and on what BMW? $155 shipped within the USA only please.
  7. Inside the lights will be paper stickers with the the poduction dates of the stainless steel housing and of the reflector/glass assembly. The code gives the week and year. Opening the light is simple.
  8. Euro Yellow Marchals look so good on red 2002s! Love the body mods you did, the flares and deleting the side markers, awesome!!!
  9. Set of four Marchal 5.75" headlights for E9 or NK sedans, Bavaria etc. 2 low/high beam with H4 bulbs & 2 high beam with H1 bulbs. Excellent used condition, glass & silvering is great.

Immaculate, complete & ready to install. Use same 3 prong & 2 prong connectors as sealed beams, plug & play, your wiring was designed to support these Euro lights. Period correct. $160 (shipping included) from NYC to US addresses only please. Thanks for looking.

Glass lenses are like new with zero road rash. Silver plated reflectors (most important for function) are excellent. Correct internal 'cat eye' diffusers produce a low and wide beam. Totally complete with NOS 12 volt yellow bulbs, wiring and factory mounting bolt hardware. Mount has 105 degrees of adjustment. Tiny imperfections in chrome on the backs of the housings, will not be seen when installed and impossible to photograph. Chrome bezels around glass have no dents or dings.

  13. Just had this same issue with the same symptoms. It was the low mileage 12 year old tires. Looked fine from exterior inspection, on the inside the rubber was separating from the belts.
