Unhappy Sorry

OK Guys, be kind......I'm really sorry I have not responded nor been on the site, no real excuses apart from the fact I had to return to Greece in February and now just got back in France. Having to register it on French plates I remembered I put the request on......

I have managed to obtain the RHS headlight at 50 euro, so the search is now on for a LHS unit......

Thanks to all who did respond though......

Have a look on websites in Belgium, you probably find what you need as many cars get broken for parts over here now as well...
Or you even can pickup a complete one for the price of one headlight if it has clutch, engine, MOT issues or a combination of those.

Thousands of LHD 75s were sold new, which is a long time a go unfortenately, as they were popular and avialable at a good price, compared to the competition. The Belgium importer for BMW is located since a long time in my village and they all liked to drive around in a 75! So back then it was not a rare sight - the opposite, but now it is since quite some years.
Still a car that people like, but don't dare to own. Sounds familiar, doesn't it?

Default More info on LHD xenons head lamps....

hi all, newbie here, apologies if hijacking the thread, but saw the LHD headlamp 'head liner' and wondered if someone could advise me on the following...

Can a RHD xenon head lamp be fitted to a LHD vehicle and the 'cross over' of beam angle from right to left be done by (as advised to me by a RHD seller...) by simple means of some euro switch? does this make sense to anyone???

Best Regards,
Sean.

There is a lever to go from rhd to flat for temporary use like holidays but it will not pass a European mot.
There is a pair of lhd xenons on ebay.

Hi Guys.
Are we assuming here that the only mods needed to pass the French ' Service Des Mines' to successfully import an English spec. R75 into France, is suitable H/Light beam replacement, or merely blanking off the English high beam with deflectors.
