    Hi Craig, no, I don't think they would fit as they are for Disco I.

    But why would you be interested in them, at £145 when you can buy the correct pair for nearly one third of that price ??? I am missing something :( :eek:

    Hi Craig
    Have a look at this link Rimmer Bros would like £49.51 inc vat for their genuine-parts headlamp but they do a patten one for a bit less.

    The Paddock ones must also be patten jobs at £28.78 inc vat, why they also have a LHD head lamp at £34.66 inc vat I don't know.

    Hi Dave
    How can any one ask for £145 + p&p for D1 lights? he's a Joker so I must tell Batman. :)

    Early D2 headlamps fit the 300 series D1 there was bit in LRO about it a few years ago. They are supposed to give more light and a more defined beam as the back of the black surround is silver therefore returning any stray light back on to the reflector.
    That's the theory.

    I will stay with the upgrade bulbs.

    Regards

    Hi Discool, Paddocks only have one price for LHD headlights at £29.50+vat.

    The cheaper ones are Right Hand Drive.

    Cheers (pay attention at the back)

    Hi Craig, I bought mine(for a Tdi 300, LHD ones !!) off ebay UK a couple of years before moving to France but two different friends locally have ordered the Paddock ones (again Tdi 300) and as far as I can tell they are identical in every way to their original ones, except of course LHD.

    I fitted both sets and had NO bother at all.

    Cheers Dave

    I think that if I was driving on RH side of the road for three years or so I would like my headlights to dip and to light up the RH kerb which UK lamps don't when dipped.

    Yep. The stick-on thingys stop you dazzling other people but they do restrict your range of vision quite a bit. And with all those empty country roads out there in the real world you DO need all your vision! If you are thinking of re-registering the vehicle in Germany they might not pass the TÜV (MoT) either.:)
