Do these look good to anyone?  :-\

those look like the ones with rounded corners (the lens at he bottom closest to the grill) so not for facelift ??  :-\

 reason I looked (and you can't see the corners due to the way they hide them in the photo) is because i ordered a pair off Nigel @ omega52 , fitted , all working  :)
then Mrs builder (who knows sod all about cars ) pointed out that one had a rounded corner, not matching the original  :'(
so i've just refurbished the original with 800,1200,1500,2000 wet n dry and t-cut

Ah. I didn't spot the rounded corners. Mrs builder has a keen eye!  ;) ;D

As you can see form the other posts, I have now sourced some adjusters, so will try to repair the existing lights.

Choosing replacement lights isn't rocket science. Simply choose 2001 for facelift and 93-97/97-99 for pre/mid as appropriate. Facelift only come in two flavours, xenon and not, and at a glance look similar, so shop carefully.

The ones in that link are actually facelift, the bulk of the 'extra' corner is cosmetic rather than functional.

Hmmm, I wonder if ABS will survive the heat?

Doesn't look too hard to model, then print...  :-\

In fact, a quick look on Thingiverse shows...

Granted it says beemer, but they probably use Hella/Whoever....

I have PLA loaded currently, but might fire one out when I get out of the bath, and look at it.  I have some ali ones to compare to.

Is it your own work?

Was just thinking of, once proved, printing a few for OOF Shop to help swell the coffers a bit.  Don't want to get into copyright/legal issues, as I've managed to avoid online lawers for 3 or 4 years now ;D

I copied the critical dimensions from an aluminium one, and tidied various parts to make them easier to draw:





I still think that the supplier of the resin ones had the right idea for making more than a couple of parts. Especially if you intend to make a profit.

Serek had some printed ones. Might be worth speaking to him about it ?................if you can get in touch with him.  :D

I think for printed parts, you might have to add an insert for an M3/M4 nut, as I reckon the thread will strip too easily...


...if Serek already has a product that he's selling, I will leave to him, as he has a business to run.

That said, Nick W, if you can send me yours either in original F360 or exported as an STL, I might print one just to see how it comes out

The original will be of more use, but I don't see any way of attaching it to a PM.


I do have an original adjuster that's cracked, but in one piece if that's any use to you.


I'd be more concerned about how durable the ball end comes out.


They're M5 threads :)


The whole problem would have been moot if only they'd made the original ones solid
