Ahhh... gotta love my R. Always keeping me on my toes. Constant stress and anger is the goal of this car! Now I need to polish this fender after I just washed and applied sealant last night.

Good thing this corner light wasn't a jewel. I'd be straight up furious if it was.
What happened? And what's a jewel?

The turn signal flew off on the highway. It wasn't clipped in right, I believe because the fender was slightly damaged by a previous owner.
Jewels are 2004 C70 headlights. Crystal clear lens vs. the fluted lens on the older P80s. It's a nice upgrade for looks and light output (I can see better than ever now!).

The clips or tabs or whatever hold the corner lights on my 98 R must be broken, lol. They're flimsy and ones tapes on. Haha. I like the looks of yours!

What headlights do you have?

First step will be to build a test setup out the 700, I don't want to risk damaging my 900

I’ve changed to the facelift tail lights on my T6, looks soooo much better :D

Is this a straight swap?

Probably, they break all the time!

They're factory "jewel" headlights out of a 2004 C70.
