Hi Andrew, is your car RHD or LHD? You mean the ones for the Super model, right?

Yes that's them,

My car is RHD as I am located in Australia :)

Cheers, Andrew.

The RHD ones are different in that the glass cover is different only; see also this previous topic (a few sources are mentioned too):

In other words, if the glass covers of your car are still OK you can buy the LHD version and just change them. Your choice of possible supply maybe larger.

For the FL / Super models, not sure about only the glass covers being different. There is a metal plate in the lens assembly which creates the uneven light pattern of the LHD cars (light farther on the right side). I believe this metal plate would have to be reversed for the RHD cars, otherwise it would blind the oncoming traffic. I don't see a reason for the glass to be different between the two. That said, I did not have the RHD headlights in my hands. Just my two cents.

It would make sense for the glass to differ for the non-projector pre-facelift headlights though.

Thanks for the replies everyone,

I have tracked down a complete set in the UK which I am going to purchase. They come complete with the metal strip underneath. The only reason I didn't purchase the ones on eBay from Australia is because they do not come with the metal strip. I know it is not necessary but it would unfinished without them.

I'll post up a few pics when they arrive.

Cheers Andrew.

As for the trims, you need at least the trim below the light (if you did not bought the lights with it already) - red metal stripe on this photo: https://shopcar.parts/product_images/00 ... .jpg?big=1
It should be painted in the color of your body.
