    Hey guys, hope you're all well.

    My Type R has it's MOT in a couple of weeks and I always have an issue with the headlight beam being all to cock. We think this is due to my car having a set of LHD light fitted for some bizarre reason. Normally we get around this by borrowing a set of headlights from another v6 car that has been lying at the back of the workshop for years gathering dust! However, the aforementioned car's owner has finally claimed it so this year unfortunately I don't have this option.

    I haven't got the budget at the moment to buy new or second hand so I was wondering if anyone has a pair lying around I could borrow for my MOT and then return in exchange for some beer tokens. I know I'm not the most active member on here, but you can be sure that if somebody is kind enough to do me a favour I will make it up to them and be eternally grateful :thumb

    I'm located in Grantham and my MOT is booked for 23rd November so ideally I'd need to collect something next weekend and return the items the following weekend.

    Thanks in advance for any help :bow

    Paul.

    If you can meet me on the A1 that's perfect. That way I don't have to hang about as I have to be there early on Saturday & I don't like getting out of bed early!
    I'll be back down again in December so we can meet up then to collect them - saves you a trip:thumb
