anyone change their ZKW headlight glass with DJ auto glass?

so..ive been told ZKW doesnt make the glass for the headlights anymore..

and the second solution is to put DJ auto glass cover on.

on umnitza.com they say DJ auto glass fit nicely onto the ZKW headlights.

has anyone done this before? was it easy or .. pain in the ass and had to customize and make do...?

thanks in advance guys

the only rust on my 99 (11 years old) is a small ding in the door - previous owner must have opened the door against a curb. Other than the small, small bubbles on the hood. amazing German steel!

I don't know who said it was NLA, but ETK as of 06/2011 still lists the part and I can see that a dealer in Estonia has one on hand priced at 139eur
