    Hi, can anyone help me with the headlights?  I want to upgrade to Halogen, if possible. I have removed the bulb housing and the glass is fixed by spring clips.  The problem is that the glass is larger than the standard Halogen light.  Has anyone done a conversion?

    Are you looking to replace the whole internal headlamp with a separate unit? I’ve seen something similar done on a Sixteen and to be honest it didn’t look very good.

    Have you thought about simply replacing the bubs with halogen bulbs? You could also consider LED bulbs – though there is some doubt it seem as to whether or not the latter are legal.

    Here’s a supplier of bulbs who might be able to help – http://www.norbsa02.freeuk.com/goffybulbs.htm

    I’m sure other suppliers could help too.
