Peteski - thanks as always broham, that's helpful! UDAMAN, man.

Miguelster... jah mon, eggzachry the feedback I was looking / hoping for.

For the "all-on simultaneous" effect w/o holding the stalk, reference Dennis' handydandy post above, pasted here for your tinkering pleasure:

With the European version, low beams get power directly from the headlight switch, so they are powered continuously. When you flip the stalk for high beams, it powers the high beams. To change yours just disconnect the yellow wire from the stalk switch and connect the other end to the loose yellow wire you will find the stalk switch wiring bundle.

Each 100 watt bulb will draw about 8 amps for a total of about 32 amps, which is fairly large load on the alternator. The wiring should be OK with the relay mod. I'm not sure how hot the head lamps will get
Verymuch looking forward to this upgrade... I've always enjoyed copious light output on all my heaps over the years (Daniel Stern FTW), and the 930's been *sorely* lacking in this regard for entiiiiiirely too long.

Not to mention, the 'look' is utterly tits (vs. titly utters)...

Major schwing'age!
