I got some from german, swedish & french car parts. They are mk4 look in a mk3 shell. I think they were £180 for the pair, I' not convinced by the quality though they keep steaming up!

They look real good compared with the standard hella's. They do steam up as most people will tell you. This is easily fixed though with some Silicon sealer around the glass/plastic join and the plastic panel at the back that you remove to replace filaments. Some peeps put silica gel in there too...

I have Hella ones in mine and the drivers side one steams up again every now and again but it doesnt cause any probs.

The only problem with hella is they only make them in LHD version I just about managed to get mine through a MOT with them on

when ever you buy aftermarket lighting products always go round the joint of the glass and back plastic with clear silicone to give it the double protection, never had a problem with my crystals fronts ever since i did that. :D

if you just buy origionel hella's you don't have the steaming problem.if so than the origionel silicone is not good anymore.

so if you want to buy some,just take hella's!

I once saw a pair of mk4 headlights on a mk3 but the back 'walls' of the headlamps had been blacked out so the silver lamps stood out even more...

Anybody know anything about these or maybe the guy did it himself ?!
