Can I ask why you have used 5W 50 oil?

This is probably my favourite take on the clear headlamp theme.

Are they aftermarket LEDs? D911 sell them for early cars but not 996.2 and I understand that they are slightly different shapes.

They look to be standard focused beam units that have been stripped and painted MATT black.

A lad on P'heads done his own take on the projector lights. Nice job. Again, they're the early style lights though.

Good thread, worth a look.

The trouble is playing about with headlights is being outlawed due to the new MOT regulations the only way to complete conversions is by using OE lamps in the case of HID`s its also with Auto levellers and washers.

This afternoon I had a spare hour whilst my dinner was in the oven so I decided the whip off the front pu to investigate the faint smell of coolant when the engine is hot.
As suspected the radiators had started to rot!
The condensers look brand new so someone turned a blind eye when fitting them.

Cheapest I found was here -

https://www.adrad.co.uk/car-radiator/catalogue.php?manu=PORSCHE&model=911&engine=3.4&year=1998

I could collect though so I saved on postage. You may have somewhere similar local to you.
