Hello all - I noticed on the main 240 page there is a shot of a sedan with round headlights, is it possible to swap out my halogen box lights on my 1985 240 wagon with the round low/high beam lights, and if so where is a good place to get them. I'm trying to spruce up the looks, and I think the round lights would look quite nice - Thanks again - you guys have been great ! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>best regards - Fred <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Easy swap - fenders, hood, grill, bumper, spoiler, all lights, etc.<p>Many 240 followers seek the same swap but in the opposite direction - just HATE that one old 7'' round headlight...<p>George Dill<p>

Hey, George... <br>I notice that you have changed the site. You can no longer reply to an individual post and have to use the "Quick Reply". <br>At any rate... I love round headlights on the 240... most specifically the single, big, round headlights. If I could change mine, it would mean that I could use those great, old Cibie flat lense headlights. <br>Unfortunately, rebuilding the entire front end of the car to do it is not my cup of Hemlock. <br>Some of the most desired cars on Earth were designed with design conflicts... like the 66 Mustang. <br>I think that anything that would un-accentuate the square look of the 240 would be a great element. <br>I have never liked my four rectangular headlights.
