Original RHD Bosch headlamp glass
« on: January 14, 2020, 11:28:21 »
I have been offered a job lot of original RHD Bosch headlamp glasses.
I need to place a bulk order so let me know if you want any at £75.00 plus VAT & shipping.

Are these original OEM Bosch lenses new old stock? I’m aware there are lenses purporting to be Bosch but they are modern retro’s with Bosch stamped on

 If they are indeed new old stock, OEM Bosch, I’ll take a couple if that’s of any help?

They do not come in Bosch boxes so may well be repros, I don't know. Since they look perfect to me when offered for comparison to a NOS complete headlamp I have here and everybody else seems to be delighted with them I have no reason not to offer them at this price.

Colin Happy New Year and Greetings from Melbourne Australia 🇦🇺

Please let me know if you have any headlamps left as I think that’s an awesome price and I’ll grab two please kind sir.

Also just the man who might be able to help me acquire a Manual 280sl.
 Would you know anyone that is wanting to swap with an auto UK 🇬🇧 1970 280sl or simply sell their RHD Manual to an aspiring Pagoda lover here in Melbourne

Many Thanks Colin

Art,


They will not work as the way the glass is cut/moulded if throws the light to the left where a left hand drive car with its LH lights throws the beam to the right.

Hi Art, They will fit physically but, as Gary says, throw the light to the left when dipped ie for those civilised drivers who drive on the left of the road  ;D- away from oncoming traffic.

I have just received a pair from Colin - several years ago I replaced the glass on our car - it was a year or so later when driving at night (very rare) that I realised that they were LHD. I now have a spare set and will install them when we eventually sell the car - the LHD/RHD issue might get picked up of the Safety Inspection prior to sale. Even on high beam oncoming traffic doesn`t seem to  complain though - not super bright lights anyway.

Colin tried sending an email through your website but kept saying error.
I sent you a message through my wife’s Facebook under Mari Hall:

In relation to the glass Bosch Headlamps purchase a pair please

Also just the man who might be able to help me acquire a Manual 280sl.
