The Jag: A quick cat-faced update to the headlights

A few weeks back, I mentioned I found some Marchal headlights on the World Wide Web. Well, I ordered those headlights and they recently showed up. That means it’s time to install them and see how they look on the Jag.

Overall, I’m quite happy with the look of the headlights. However, I do think I either need to put the high beams back to a clear lens or see if Marchal makes a 5 3/4 lens. For now, though, the Jag will run with this setup until I get it sorted out. I have yet to drive at night so I have no idea if I’ve made a terrible choice or not. Knowing me… we can probably guess the outcome.


  1. Now that the outer lamps are selective yellow my choice would be to swap the inner lamps for the corresponding white Marchal high beams. Then again, I swapped the bulbs in the headlights of my French car from the factory yellow to white, so clearly my judgment is questionable at best.

    1. No, I was thinking the same thing really. I am going to track down some 5 3/4 Marchals in white/clear
