Hy folks!
Does anyone know, where I could get American style headlight set for my Volvo 740 GLE 1988? I have no options than buy them from Internet.
They look like that: Headlights
In my country (Estonia) these lights are very rare, I could even say that nobody has them. I looked from eBay but no luck.
I would appreciate if someone could hint me an Internet shop... or could arrange them (from scrapyard?) to Estonia.
My contact: [email protected]

Best wishes,
Edward.

So e-mails were sent and in 3 days only one replied to me and said that this set will cost me almost 400$ with shipping. This is my one month paycheck...
Oh well... Seems like that set will stay as a dream...
Thank you for the answer sulley007!

From ebay I could get basic parts, such as hi and low lights and turn signals but I can't get the most important part: mounting bracket...

Hi! I'm still in search of these headlights. Does anyone know, how much your local scrapyard want money for the whole set?

People throw those things in the garbage here in North America!
You should offer to swap your Euro spec lamps with someone here in USA/Canada for their quad setup just for the cost of shipping. Maybe someone has some kicking around? No, I don't. Sorry I can't help.

Hi guys.
I'm also interested of the american style headlights.
Here in Sweden, it's posible to get the parking lamp and the turn signal lamp, and of course the low and high beam. But not the mounting bracket. No frame.
Please let me know if there is any internet shop selling this things. Been searching for alot of hours.
