GTI Hella Lights

Whats the Hella lens / part number for the GTI / USA style lights. Can any of the US sealed beam units be used in the UK or better to replace them all?

The US ones will fail an MOT as the beam is the wrong way, to keep it legal UK ones have to be ftted.

MRMENDER is something of a self-confessed HELLA 82-GTI style headlight spotter and I'm sure he will be able to help. Unfortunately my GTI is not nearby so I can't read off the part number for you.

They are a common part to many vehicles (including early Audi Quattros, early 80s Renaults and lots of commercial vehicles) and you can still get the lights from Hella stockists. They have different frames and trims to normal Scirocco lights which need to be purchased separately - I think they're still available from VW Classic Parts.
