Help Left Hand Drive Headlights

I have a 1992 164 twinspark right hand drive and we are inseperable. However to get her through the french equivalent of the MOT( we live in France now) I need LHD lights. I cant afford brand new ones and cannot bear to think of sending her to that great scrap-yard in the sky! Can anyone help

Re: Left Hand Drive Headlights

Hi there.

If it's a UK spec car you'll not be able to just get a control technique for it.

You normally need to jump through hoops at the prefecture to get it type approved.

Lots of paperwork.

It'd be easier to just take it back to the UK for an MOT!

Re: Left Hand Drive Headlights

lived there and looked into the same thing problem is cost and paper work you need a conformation from alfa europe to state that car is of same spec as french supplied model and conforms to criteria in france after that 100 euros you then need to register car at local hotel d'ville price for this varies according to age value and car but you need the C.T. first if after choosing to spend this money you still wish to go a head then if you contact the dealer you can on later models change just the glass lenses not the whole light unit failing that search the local french scrapyards for s/hand ones
