    Anyone know if 96-00 B5 V6 had different dimension headlights than 1.8t, 2.0 etc. I found a Hella replacement lens, but the seller keeps telling me its compatible only with a V6 B5. Anyone know or have a V6 and can measure them for me? Thanks

    Just dropping in a note that I recently posted a how to video on replacement of the headlight lens. This forum has helped me with numerous projects on my girlfriends car (including a timing belt change). Just trying to give back and hopefully it will help someone. Easy enough project for sure.

    I need just the passenger side but if the price is right I'll buy a pair. I'd like to have the clear style but not crystal clear, as seen below: Must be perfectly intact, with spring clasp, all tabs still there, etc.

    :confused: So I messed up my headlights last night trying to black them out with VHT Night Shade. after spraying a light coat of VHT on the lights and some clear, I tried to rush the process along a little by using a heat gun to quick dry the clear. This how ever ended up cracking the lens on...
