Dealers used to sell them a while back, very rare to find now.

Xpel can do a pre-cut sheet of film, expensive but i'm trying them on a couple of my cars to see if it will offer some protection and slow down the yellowing of the headlights.

Apparently there is or was. See here for part numbers. That said, I've never seen an Omega with them fitted.

And it's unclear to me whether they are Vauxhall option only, hence Right Hand Drive only. Or whether the RHD version is interchangeable with LHD (Opel) branded vehicles. The OP is in Norway.

Also it seems that 91155742 is an option intended to alter the beam angle from RHD to LHD for Vauxhalls in use on the Continent? But there seems to be no equivalent for LHD Opel vehicles?

I have a pair fitted on my Omega ever since I have owned the car, and I have owned her from new :y (Last of the Mini Face Lifts  :y)

They do seemed to stop the light lenses suffering with the old cataracts, when you then have to break out the polishing paste, water and good quality wet and dry and elbow grease (keeping her in the garage out of the elements helps to !).

I did get a replacement pair a bit ago, but I can't recall where I got them.  I shall have a look if I can find where.

They did have the habit of breaking every time you closed the bonnet  :'( but this was always due to the Vauxhall Grease Monkey Dropping it closed from a height !

I Carefully close the bonnet myself now and don't let the Stealers anywhere near her !
