    help needed please

    Can anyone suggest where I might buy a set of European headlights for my 2008 Megane?  Either new or used?

    Is there a Renault dealer in or around Las Chafiras?

    New Renault parts will be expensive, and most cars in breakers yards will have the front smashed in, you would be lucky to find some, now i'm pretty sure somebody will do a conversion mask you stick over your RHD and convert it to LHD, same with the speedo to covert to KPH from MPH,
    Spend some time on the tinternet searching, Ebay etc, easy to transport over from the UK too, or even post, Good luck

    I believe places like Halfords do the masks and obviously the internet.  I sourced a new set From Germany a couple of months ago for about €300.

    I can get masks, but will I not have to change them for the IPTV test to put it onto Spanish Plates though?

    At the ITV as long as the headlight pattern is for LHD it will pass, you can do it with black tape if you research how,
    as for finding 2 headlights undamaged in a breakers is unlikely, but you never know, Transport

    Black tapes the answer, silly money for them amber sticky plastic bits, also with black tape I made an arrow and stuck bottom right of windscreen pointing right reminding me where the pavement should be, handy at complicated junctions...
