Default Rover 75 MG ZT MKII Facelift Headlight Protectors

Hi All,

As you may know these are hard to get hold of and I have been investigating the potential to get these remanufacture.

Having done some initial research, I have discovered the only way this could happen would be if the volumes were sufficiently high.

With this in mind I would be grateful if you could vote on the poll if you would like to buy these in the next 12 months.

There is no committment to buy at this stage.

Costs are likely to be £50 + Postage (Say £5) for a pair.

These are ONLY for MKII Facelift vehicles

I would certainly have two sets for my mk2's, always concerned that stones could render car off the road for want of a hard to get headlight.

Have thought about making a couple of sets out of polycarbon.

Hi there,

i did post up a thread not long ago when i was on the look out for mk1 projector headlamps i contacted DEPO (the headlamps are listed on their website) and i got an email back from them saying they are going to make all variants of 75/ZT headlamps available by June/July this year im not sure on prices but it might be worth hanging on until they are on the market to see if it viable depending on their prices

Hi,Martin

Good morning.

For Rover 75, we have below items, but all of them are under development, probably will be finished in July.
We welcome you come to ask us at that time and we will introduce you to contact our local distributor .
Sorry the incinvenience caused.

DEPO CODE DESCRIPTION 882-1122MRDEM1 ROVER 75 '99- 882-1122MRDEM2 ROVER 75 '99 882-1115MRDEM2 ROVER 75 '04 882-1115MRDEM6 ROVER 75 '04 WITH PROJECTOR RHD 882-1123MRDEM2 ROVER 75 '99 WITH PROJECTOR RHD

so by the sounds of it at some point this year we should have a good supply of brand new patened lamps of all types for all ZTs and 75s probably a lot cheaper than rimmers or xpart could supply brand new MGRover items, i thought id post this as i know some ppl on here are in the same position as me looking for halogen projectors and even reflector halogens or xenons which although are in good supply second hand this is not always useful as second hand parts generally dont have a warranty and a lot of insurers only fit new, this may help people like me when i had an accident in my ZT-T last year it was written off because both xenon headlamps were damaged (only the brackets) and as a result wrote my car off because new genuine ones came to best part of £1000 and there were no patented ones on the market and they wouldnt fit second hand or even repair mine

I've been talking to a DEPO distributor this afternoon, about getting R75 lights, who is getting prices from them.
I was going to post link up when I get the prices - lead times may be an issue as they ship in a container full of various lights ever 2-3 months; air freighting can get expensive.

That is interesting, be sure to post up any further info you get on this, might save a lot of trouble and aggro!

Cheers

I've had a virtually similar reply from DEPO.

My Company import a lot of lights from them (for pick up trucks & MINI), about a container full every 3 months. I'm waiting on pricing, and we will decide whether to import commercially (it's worth noting that they are looking at the full spread of lights - front & rear/ MK1 & 2/ Saloon & Tourer), or whether I just get a box put into our container and sell them privately either through here or on fleabay.

They are also looking at Xenon units - again I'm waiting a price!

Do you think they would be interested in a group buy for facelift Xenon headlamps?

Given the price of these things on ebay, everybody is scrambling for them, us facelift guys need a sensible supply of these puppies

I am not surprise with the poll result to date given the replacement cost of these things if you can find one. The scrappies have us over a barrel on this one.

Just a thought, does anybody know how many facelifts were produced and roughly how many have been scrapped?

Ed

A caballeros in Africa has proposed making a clear headlamp protector cover in plastic for the 75 MG ZT MARK 2 Facelift. If successful, he will make more for export. I have been looking for one on his behalf whilst I have been here without any luck, trying ebay, rimmers and x-part.
