R8 style headlights on 08 plate

Post by crxftyyy » Fri Nov 09, 2018 8:06 pm

Hi all, has anyone purchased the black r8 style led headlights for a caddy of this year? Can't find any photos of them fit to a car before I decide whether to take the plunge

Hi, welcome to the forum.
I wasn't aware such a thing existed, do you have any links or photos of these lights?

Why would you have custom ones made if you like these ones?

I would just buy the ones you like rather than pay for custom ones that are likely to let moisture in again

I'm getting them for under half the price of these lights and they're exactly what I wanted

I wouldn’t buy those lights either! They aren’t the best are they! I didnt even know anyone made customs for the pre facelift! Do they have a website?

Not sure if he's known on here but he's got a Facebook page. Harry's Mk4 Mods, see how they turn out and he might be doing a batch of them
