I am Looking for <U>complete</U> European headlight assemblys (left & right) Also the <U>complete</U> European turnsignal assemblys (left & right)<br>This is for a 1993 940t wagon, USA version.<br>New or used (if in good condition)<br>Maybe a referal to a distributor or dealer with good pricing.<br>My stock headlights, even with the fog lights have very poor light out put. It is bad enough when its dry, even worse when raining. This seems like the best fix.<BR><BR>

Re: Needing help finding European headlights (keeper940tw)

Hello, call it corny, call it takky,... call it what you may, but the best bet is eBay United Kingdom. Some months ago I made the Euro front conversion for my 940 sedan. I bought the side turn signals first, new from a guy in London. Later I asked for the plastic undersill below the headlights, and finally both headlights used from a guy in London. I bough the Continental Headlights that are used in Continental Europe, if you buy the Headlights used in London the foglights are asymmetrical, but great nonetheless. Now be prepared to pay well above what you can get replacing yours for new ones in eBay.<p>Also, very important keep the plastic bracket that holds the grill and foglighs to the radiator cause you'll reuse it to attach the new ones.<p>Another place to get them is Eurosport Tunning or JP Styling. They are expensive, but I don't think there is someplace in US to buy them. I've heard they are illegal here.<p>You can also visit my cardomain page and see the finished result.<p>Hope this helps! and Good Luck!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Yes Ebay and its EURO sources is a very good start. But will you have a STATE or FEDERAL inspection issue in WA? Many Euro lights are great but totally illegal in the USA and NA. Also insurence companies just love to look for reasons to denie claims. This will be one for sure. BE careful.

Do a search (google recommended) for Bram Smits Headlight E-code. The link to "SBricks" should be a good start.<p>- John

Thanks guys! I am still not too trusting of overseas buys on ebay. But I will look somemore. In Wa they just check the emissions, nothing else. So I should be safe there.
