I have noticed 1 or 2 capris with these lights now... 1 of the big disappointments of driving my capri, is how crap the headlights are... Can you shed any more light (excuse the pun) on fitting the BMW head lights, i.e which model/year of BMW do they come off, also is it an easy job etc etc :D Or wo...

if you buy a performance cam kit from someone like Kent cams, then you could fit that without changing anything else...

ive messed around with pintos for more years than i care to mention :oops:
