I have a problem registering my Sedona exec 2001 in France due to wrong headlamps. I have tried the dealers in the UK who tell me that they only have access to UK spec replacements. I have tried a German retailer who said the single lens, first generation type I need are not available, Before I try a French retailer, which will probably cost a fortune i thought I would ask members, if anyone happens to have moved the other way from Europe to the UK and have a 2nd hand pair they would be interested in selling please let me know. Alternatively if anyone has other advice I would be really pleased to listen to your suggestion................heres hoping! Cheers, mike

Hi there!
I live out in Germany and loads of us Brits have RHD cars and need the European lights.

Here's one company that offers headlights:



www.rogersheadlights.com



I've never dealt with them myselfso I can't promise anything, but if they can't help you they may be able to point you in the right direction.

There's a link on their website to theirsection on ebay and they do sell sets for older models.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Cookie
funnily enough Rogers was the firm that provided my replacements last month. they gave me a set of used lights at 350 euros, which turned out to be RHD units, which was a little embarrassing at the 'controle technique' (MOT) re-test and meant i lost the MOT fee of 55euros. I then had to return the lights from france at a charge of 42euros. I am still waiting for a refund from Pascal Roger. I remain hopeful that i might get most of my 450 euros back. I understand they have a really good reputation with the military in Germany so i am sure that my experience has been an unfortunate one off.

cheers again

Hi,


See that you post was written a while ago and wondering how you got on. Am in the same situation of needing to replace my headlights for my CT but not wanting to pay 750‚¬ quoted from Kia. How did you get on? Thanks.
