Hope your project goes well...
pretty sure they are all belt driven PAS - same as Bravo/a.

Re: Many Marea questions from a newbie!

Ok.. so, i am changing the headlights (the brackets are snapped on the drivers side)...

I have noticed that the marea lights have completely clear, unfocused glass in front of them.. while the bravo/a of the same year (2001) has fluted glass (to aid the spread/focus)

I am wondering (as i prefer to change lights in pairs.. nothing worse than having one that looks newer than the other) if the light would perform better with the fluted focused lens or with the clear lens?

What do we think?

Yeah, that's not one of the options though.. Like i said.. the choice is the high beam with Clear Glass in front or Fluted Focused glass.

anyone?
