FS: E30 Euro ellipsoids

A set of headlights from a European E30. Clean glass with no cracks or fogging. Unsure of the type or condition of bulbs. Needs two clips to be replaced on the vacuum adjusters which can also be completely discarded and replaced with manual adjusters. Clip is $7 ea and adjusting screw is $20 ea at Mississauga BMW.

Great upgrade for the dark winter months.

$200 firm

I don't think they will fit ... but then again, I don't know what type of brackets you'd need. Pretty sure the lights are the same size.

Of course there is!

Different light pattern, city lights, H1 bulbs for hi and low. In the Euro ones, when you put the high beam on, low turns off as they only have one filament per H1 bulb.
