Re: New owner of a nice little B. =) ME !!!

No prob, I will.

Anyone could give me an advice for the exhaust? 4 inch or 3.5 inch?

About the head lights, I was that the old Barchettas had black ones, and new ones are grey/silver.

Is there any possibility of having black ones on a new model?

Hi Nathaniel. I don't know whether you're aware but you can actually modify the headlights. Once they're off the car it takes about half an hour a light, I did mine when I imported it in to France.The French B Club site has a complete set of instructions, in French, together with photos. Have a look.
Your car looks in excellent condition, same model as mine. Enjoy

Hi Nathaniel, forgot to say that while you have the headlights of you can easily repaint them black or whatever colour you want.

Doblo,

Is this easy then, i was under the impression you will need to cut the lens away and then have them resealed, Are they watertight and look the same when this is done,

I do have a spare set of black lights for which i could try but would,nt want to ruin them..

Re: New owner of a nice little B. =) ME !!!

Thanks to everyone for the answers

Yeah, I knew about the fact that you could do the change to French lights by changing the plate. But one of the lights is a bit broken, so I prefer getting new ones.

I was thinking about painting them black, but I'm afraid that with the heat of the xenon kit, the paint will get off…

Could you just confirm that I can put old barchettas front lights (before 2000) on a new model? They are £220 each, so don't want to mess out things...

Thanks !

about xenon:
"The light output from a 35W 4300K HID Xenon lamp is about 300% more visible light than a 55W halogen bulb. The xenon hid kit will also consume much less power from your vehicles electrical system and generate much less heat during operation."

Hi KC3.
Maybe I'm looking at a different area of black! The area I mean is the black painted 15mm edge that can only be got at once the assembley is taken off the body. I've obviously missed something if there other black bits. My B is a Mk2 03.
