    Dark headlights

    Are all vauxhall and irmscher dark headlights the same?

    I've seen loads of different pictures of ones which claim to be either coupe, gsi or post 2003 headlights and they often look very different.

    Is this just the light on them in the pic and the camera flash?

    Here's what i'm chatting about:




    I don't want to go and spend my cash and find they aren't much different to my current ones.

    Righto

    Thanks for that

    Now I just have to decide whether its worth the risk to buy off ebay.de, where all astra parts are dirty cheap. Hmmm

    I wouldn't bother with German headlights - they drive on the other side of the road to us, and so the dipped beam will 'flick' the other way to UK spec cars.

    lol

    Hadn't thought about that

    If they came without the bulbs and motors etc would they be ok, as I could fit my existing adjusters which are UK style?

    unfortunately not - the flick of the beams come from the shape of the reflectors on of the headlight itself, so whatever you do they will always be for a LHD car
