Greetings all
New to the site hoping to get some help.
I just bought an 86 190D with 248000 kms on it.
I want to replace the headlight assemblies as they are cracked, which is about $95 per side.
I would like headlight covers to protect the investment, but can't find them anywhere for this model.
Incidentally so far I have replaced the windshield and both park brake cables and otherwise it seems like an excellent car.

Hello Benzter, and welcome!

I assume you have euro-style lights on your car. You did mention 248000kms. Where are you located?

Do you want some sort of headlight cover that is extra on top of the glass front covers of your headlights? We may need a little more info as to what you want to do. Let us know.[:)]

Hey Jammerkiller

Apologies for the lack of details. I am in Edmonton Alberta just south of all that tarsand!

The headlights are the standard North American spec halogen sealed beam type. The park light lens is the piece that is pitted and smashed from rocks.

I would like to cover both the headlights and the park light with a plastic cover to protect them.
I was thinking a plastic cover would be easier and cheaper to replace than the assembly.

Any ideas ?

By the way the last of the snow just melted here yesterday!!!

Thanks very much for the offer Wianka, but I have a brother-in-law in The Netherlands who just informed me that he has a line on some Euro lights for me.

If it work out I probably won't even require the covers I asked about at the start of this thread.
