      Hey all,

      I am looking for the E-Code headlights for the corrado (part #132 805-00 / 132 806-00). I am hoping somebody knows where to get these hah. I have searched EBay and a few other websites looking for these headlights or any OEM headlights for the Corrado. I currently have Halos (previous owner had put them on) but prefer the OEM look and the E-Code look.

      Thank you in advance!

      Where did you find those part numbers?

      I looked on 7zap but they don't specify if they are US or Euro headlights:

      Classic Parts has US headlights:

      Here's a set:

      A better set with wiring and adjusters:

      Here's a nice reasonably priced set, but I think they are VR6 headlights:

      Make sure whatever you do, that you get a set of LHD(Left Hand Drive) ones. When you are dealing with european parts, you don’t want to end up with a set from the UK. You end up with a bunch of ticked off drivers blinded by your lights, lol. Just a heads up, mist everyone knows.👍

      Any Advice
      For VW classic parts order from EU, is it better to order through US dealerships (like zeb used to do)? Just wondering, shipping cost etc. seems high maybe.

      Andy Varga (VWPartsGuru) has a very well established line for VW parts from Germany.
      Located in BC (western Canada) and professionally ships.

      Frank (G60ING) has just launched his distribution, also.
      Has a great line on hard to find German items and VERY knowledgeable of Corrados.
      Corrado Alley on fb.
      Ships from Edgewater MD.
      He just made a Group Buy for hood foams and can't keep up with all the praise from all who joined in for it!

      I'd check in with these two first.
      Good luck with your build.

      But rather to skid in broadside thoroughly used up, totally worn-out and loudly proclaiming: WOW! What a ride!!

      Ignore these numbers 132 805-00 / 132 806-00.

      Only Hella used the numbers internally. You won't find these numbers at VW nor CP.

      All European headlight housings (RHD + LHD) have these numbers.
      No matter whether early or late model.
