      Yes, I did. Interestingly enough, headlight lenses were the only pre-cut patterns available for the 850 at the place that works on my cars. All the other pieces had to be customized.

      Back in the day, getting a PPF done was not a problem but it looks like older cars are being deleted out of databases quite fast.

      Those headlight lenses are for LHT!

      Did you get the SIPS sticker from the guy in Italy? Looks like one of the proper reproductions with the white letters set on clear background.

      I would see if you can get them to give you the template file. Hopefully a .dxf or something not super proprietary.

      When you get a chance, check your pm, Jared as I sent you a PM regarding the lights.

      I got the lights from Germany and have no idea how to tell the difference So please do help.

      Yes, the SIPS stickers came from the guy in Italy........ I am pretty sure you gave me his contact info

      I asked for the files for the PPF and apparently is a big industry no no. They recreated all the factory pieces for me as well but would not share the files. ...... I tried.

      Ted I don't see a PM from you, but telling the difference in beam pattern is easy. The Fresnel pattern on the main beam is just mirrored for LHT vs RHT. Obviously you need to know which is which to pick up on that but if you compare at my cars you'll see it.





      Also you can just turn the headlights on and look at the pattern on the garage wall and see what you get. Should look like this (don't mind the mismatched bulbs lol; I was mid-LED upgrade)

      Thank you. Looks like I have one correct and one incorrect one. Darn it! I am away from the car now but will double check when I am back in Seattle.

      Apparently I never sent the message earlier. Please check your PM and get back to me when you can
