Hi everyone,

I just replaced the Bosch headlight lenses with Hella ones. Since the car came from Japan, the old lenses angled the light towards the left while the light is dipped, so I could barely see the right side of the road at night, and oncoming motorists kept flashing me even at low beem. Imagine how they must have felt with my high beems on! So I went out and bought the correct lenses brand new for 80 riyals each (that's about 16 dollars US,) and the improvement was amazing!
Installing them was a 20-minute affair: Bolt off the headlights, click off the old lenses, clean reflectors, click on the new lenses and bolt on the headlights. [:)]
Now I need to do a headlight re-alignment, and I had already done it two only months ago!
Oh and I managed to break off one turning indicator's clip in the process [:(!] But nothing a smear of Super Glue couldn't fix.
