Default Crystal lens

I know it's a bit of a long shot but I'm after a nearside headlight lens for the crystal headlights that are in my 98 V70, just got a stone clip!!!

And, from practical experience, quite easy to change!

Yep saw them, are they good quality? The Volvo originals have a plastic coating on the inside to prevent condensation I think?

Same as he said ^^^.

No condensation (the gasket is a good one). And I bet anybody (apart from BKV judges!?) would spot the difference in the lens.

Add to that, PFV are a fast and efficient company.

Duh...

Engage brain before engaging fingers! "And I bet anybody..." should read " And I bet nobody..."

I plead stupidity following having had to traipse around Tesco doing the shopping. I hate that task!
