    Post Headlights with broken bottom lugs

    I am after some smoked headlights (standard) for my Coupe. I have seen some for sale on Ebay but most of them have the bottom lugs broken! Will these still fit tight ok or...??

    Cheers

    There's supposed to be a fixing kit available from Vx for around £3 IIRC, it definetely contains the top mounts and should in theory contain the bottom one as well, you then use some plumbers solvent to weld the new ones to your headlights. They are made so that headlights can be repaired cheaply for insurance purposes.
