    BMW Z3 RHD Headlights (with amber indicators) - removed when I fitted angel eyes to my silver Z3 a couple of years back. Been sat in the shed for a couple of years now, in good condition but a bit dusty.

    Missing 3 bulb holders (see pics).

    £80.00 including UK P&P

    Hi Gaz, do these headlights have a facility to alter from RHD to LHD albeit having a "flat" beam image on lhd? If so HT may be able to use them.:)

    I honestly don't know... Don't think so, otherwise they would already be in transit to him with my best wishes :)

    JFMI, what exactly are the differences? My DOT here doesn't differentiate in any regulations or mandate changes to RHD vehicles. There are no recommendations from them regarding changes even. My car should be here in 7-10 days and I just know I need tires for sure for my safety. JIM

    Jim, as simple as this, RHD lights shine in the wrong direction and can annoy LHD drivers.
    When I go to the UK I have to stick on 'Beam Benders' on the lenses.
    (Eat your heart out Tony, I stuck something on my car)

    I guess I'll wait and see how pi$$d off drivers get before switching over. JIM

    Just checked in my owners handbook and for driving in another country it simply says BMW service can supply a "mask" to deflect the light beam.
    Even so a car will pass the M.O.T. in this country with masks fitted to the headlights. It would help get you on the road Mike if nothing else:)

    When I went to the UK with my ultra lowered 318i, more so front end, I had forgotten the masks and know one flashed high beam at me but I think my head lights were shining mostly on the ground in front of the car.
