Might have a drivers side but with a faulty adjuster so it's very slightly low . poss you could have a look to modify it so it is spot on . waiting for the garage i bought the car off to ok the £550 VAG bill to replace + fit !

let me know if you want or otherwise i will keep as spare or sell on fleabay .....

Hi Andy,

been speaking to plymouth garage about replacement , the r32 headlamp is a unique one i have found out , totally sealed , might be the reason why you are being quoted a complete unit replacement price.

to be honest will be keeping just in case anything happens to the new one in the future . Have been told you can cut the bonded seal with a cheese wire to gain access + rebond but it's risky .

My part alone quote has been £393.85 including VAT.
