GTA 'look-a-like' headlights [Rep of Ireland]

If Irish members needs a pair of standard 156 headlights GTA'd send me a PM.

Before:

After:

Passengers Side close up:

I now have a spare pair completed ready for fitting.

€100 for the pair fitted & I'll take yours as a trade-in, assuming they are in good/decent condition

BTW: For €40 I can supply these with New bulbs/lamps:

* 50%+ Main Beam [ H1 x 2 ]

* 50%+ Dipped [ H7 x 2 ]

* Sidelight [Hw6 x 2 ]

BTW NEVER use Silicon sealant of any sort, causes condensation.

Re: GTA 'look-a-like' headlights

Remove the lense by unclipping each clip, there are 5:
