98 V70r aftermarket headlights: fb find

Post by CIK7 » Tue Jan 21, 2020 11:27 pm

After finding this V70r on Facebook, I feel I gotta get a pair. Only worry is that I like glass and it's so much better than the garbage plastic that Ford decided to transition to. Where in the world would I find these? The 850 version won't work will it? I don't have money to buy them right now but maybe a year or so from now.

ABM projectors - available in black like above and ‘chrome’ ,available from IPD etc $450 USD then you need the matching corners. Lighting is ok .. folk tend to retro fit moromito projector lamps In place of the supplied low beams. Not recommended for use with LED or HID.
They are glass lenses - the difference between LHD and RHD are the lenses ( I don’t fully understand the US terms for the DOT and E-code glass) they aren’t plastic, and yes, they are only for x70’s.

Type ABM into a search here and a plethora of information will issue forth...

There are vendors on eBay that have some but be careful, they don't always get the fitment info correct.
