*SOLD* RHD headlights

I have a set of headlight off a 2001 2.2, and I'm offering them here before I put them on ebay at the weekend. They come with all the bulbs , and were working fine when I took them off the car 6 months ago. Indicator lenses are tango, and the lights have chrome rings. £100 collected from Tring, herts.

WTB: facelift seat wiring, or seats

As it says, I need 2 sets of facelift seat wiring (or just the yellow connector from the seats)

Would alternatively take a set of facelift seats and remove the wiring myself, but as I already bought M seats I don't have a huge budget.
