    Black headlights

    Are these just the standard black plastic vaux ones as on later Astras because they appear darker to me, i'm sure I've seen black lights like these on a German sight, they looked like they had tinted glass?????

    Don't look the same as mine. My black ones are a shiny black, those seem to be a matt colour.

    Mk4 lights are made by Hella. They sometimes do different coloured reflectors, but usually only for LHD cars (BMW smoked Hellas for example).

    Because other than the UK, Australia and Japan, everyone else drives on the wrong side of the road. Unless they're going for OEM it wouldn't be worth making them with the different reflectors to suit RHD.
