Hi All,
Having completed my trans-African adventure and the '94 LC coming through like a champ, I now need to import the UK reg right hand drive to France, where I live.

In order to pass the French CT (UK MOT equivalent) I need to convert the headlights (just the temporary beam reflecting stickers won't suffice).

Any idea if I can just fit the headlamp units made for a European left hand drive cruiser on a UK right hand drive cruiser? Or not that easy?

They seem to go for around 130euro a side here: [url=http://www.euro4x4parts.com/parts/lop1067-2183_headlamp.html ]euro4x4parts[/url]

Is this what I am looking for?

Cheers!

You need to get a set of LHD headlight units because you can't adjust the RHD ones enough to change over the beam angle.

Then just do your headlight alignment as normal and job done.

Simple and shouldn't be too expensive either.
