Does anyone know the headlamp size fitted as standard for a Roadsport SV 1.6 K supplied as a kit in 2002? Unfortunately my car is in a different country so I can't just go out and measure them. It seems there are 11 inch, 7 inch and 5.75 inch available in black or chrome. Is that correct? Mine are chrome which is something I like.
I need to revert my headlamps from right hand traffic (as in France) to left hand traffic (as in UK). I might take the opportunity to upgrade to LEDs but in other posts there seems to be mixed views on this idea. Let's not repeat the arguments here, but focus on what job involves. My understanding is that you need to buy the LEDs as an entire unit (2) which is set for either LHT or RHT and includes the glass, back part and the internal LED bulb as well as wiring and connector. It is then a case of removing the existing headlight assemblies, replacing them with the new LED assemblies, and then adjusting both lights so that they are correctly aligned. Is this correct? Are the electrical connectors the same? Are there any gotchas?
If I decide to keep with halogens, then I guess that it is just a case of replacing the glass covers (containing the prism the throws the light to the left on dip beam) and then adjusting both lights so that they are correctly aligned. Where is a good place to buy the glass covers? Does anyone have any tips for keeping the whole assembly waterproof? It was 20 years since I did this when building the car so can't remember what I did.
If I can't identify the size of my existing headlights and decide against LEDs, then I will need to buy two entire units (glass, back part, bulbs). Is it better to go for 11 inch, 7 inch and 5.75 inch? What are the pros and cons?
I hope someone can help
