Ebay, but seems a troublesome route to be fitting headlamps from a car that is already history. If they're increasingly becoming harder to find, future replacements could be a bigger headache still. They were not great headlamps to start with. The look is rather cool but seems a short-lived fashion accessory.

£350 for LHD is serious pulling pants down and colonic with a hosepipe territory.

Even £350 for RHD is painful

Hella really need to get them remade and pronto
