MPS Engineering in Germany can do the headlight conversion for you. Good quality and TUV approved. Also price is not too bad. Give them a try and tell them I sent you. ;)

Bought a set of lights off here from a 33 as the garage couldnt get any and took them with the car to get them to fit them to mine simple i thought lol until i phoned them a week later to be told the lights dont fit as they are to big and i would have to wait until they could source another set of lights obviously i wasnt very happy with this so went to see them so they could show me the problem as i was under the impression the hella lights are the same for all models.
when i asked them to show me the problem i couldnt believe it they had tried to fitt the full lens and reflector unit from the 33 as shown.
I had to explain that i wanted the hella light removing from the 33 units a fitting to my lights which i now hope they understand and wont take another week for them to tell me they cant do it

Wasn't talking you Steve, I know that you use to get your stuff done your own.

Norm asked on this thread where to go and didn't listen. Now he's having probs. Sometimes better to listen to people who know what they're talking about...
