Quad headlights

Postby rvdz » Sun Aug 21, 2016 7:53 am

As the title suggests, looking for a set of quad headlights with BFM's. Don't need the bezels.

Thanks in advance!

Going to the dark side are we :lol:
I have literally just bought a set of quads with a view to refurbing them and fitting new lamps. The frames are rusty so I was going to clean them up and make them presentable with stainless fittings, the bfm's have had their wires cut as well so need repair.
All that is doable but after pricing new lamps I have realised it is probably not viable as a project to either sell on or leave on the shelf. Quickly looking at prices it seems I would not get a set of new lamps for under £200, obviously I will be shopping around and scouring the net to try and get the price down, but I may just leave them on the shelf or even break them for bits.
I fitted a new set to mine not many years ago and am disappointed to find both outer lamps are already corroded and will not last for many more mot's :o

They were genuine Lucas. I would love some Cibies (Paul has these still on his S ) but I am not sure if they are still available.

Has anyone found a better option for new Quad lamps inner and outer recently?
I think all of Lucas production has gone gtyo china with the inevitable drop in quality.

Valeo: cheap & cheerful!

Used them on my Sovereign, including the odd replacement after severe stone chip incidents.

Not sure whether they only offered them in LHD, though...
