Cheers.
Going to give mine another sand first and take my time with it and see how that goes.
Quite like the black inners on the ones I linked to though.

They have arrived.  Look good.  They haven't got the VW emblem on the main beam, but they've had a good go at doing something similar.

Don't forget to get them properly aligned, I kept getting flashed by other drivers until my mot garage sorted them out for me.  :driver:

I got a pair of Depo ones from ebay, not had any real issues so far. They're a single unit so you can't replace broken fittings which is a bit pants. Easy to fit, no need to remove the bumper just the top grill.

One down one to go.  Can't get other headlight out as I previously broke the connector.

New lights don't come with the bulb holder for one of the bulbs, so had to use the old one.
