Seems the courier company gave the headlights an almightly drop in transit and despite the epic wrapping of fab5freddy the reflector has broken off the adjuster mount on the passenger headlight. So the long and short of it is I still need a passenger GTI headlight with black surround and have a drivers one I could swap for it or buy.

So any passenger black GTI headlights out there still ?

Just bought another one and it was broken in the same place. A note to anybody shipping headlights put in a large box filled with squishy foam packing as it seems the lights are very vulnerable to light shocks in certain directions.

Darren thats unbelivable bad luck  :sad1:

Also in hindsight to anyone sending lights maybe a small bit of wadding stuffed into the cavity to stop any movement. Might help
