    Question LHD / RHD Headlights

    Hi,
    Does anyone know if the headlights on a RHD Signum (pre-facelift, halogen, non AFL) are the same as the LHD units? Since there are no beam deflection patterns on the lenses, is the alignment just set up by adjusting the headlight units as a whole? Or have I missed something here. Seen some headlight units from Germany but didn't want to buy them if there are only suitable for LHD cars.
    Thanks

    There must be a difference in their alignment/construction etc. as a RHD-LH light has a different part number to a LHD-LH unit.

    The headlights have LHD and RHD setting within them. Having taken a few to bits to do the Xenon upgrades, on the inside of the headlight there are some plastic tabs marked with LHD and RHD settings. They would be a little fiddly to move but looked like they could be changed. (of course, I could be completely wrong but worth checking).

    Hi, i have a UK RHD Vectra C and am moving to Spain. Is there the possibility of stripping the headlights down and flicking a switch to be LHD or do I need to purchase two new LHD units?

    If I do purchase two new units are they easy to fit (i.e. can I remove the existing ones and do the new ones simply "plug" in and re-fit?)

    Thanks.

    Hi, I think facelift, it's got the "fancier lights" not squareish ones. However, I have found these on eBay in Spain (http://cgi.ebay.es/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...fvi%3D1&_rdc=1) they're Angel Eyes (are they ok) for LHD Opel Vectra. WIill these fit in RHD Vectra? Is it easy to do? Many thanks for your help.
