Default Are Euro glass lenses compatible with NA OEM headlights?

Topic question. Couldn't find anyone who has asked this question. Also the guy has them for 250 on craigslist.

How much should I buy them for?

If it's CL I gather it's local.

I can't answer your question but if I were you I would grab a few tools and go find out.

No, the euro lenses do not fit on NA headlights. Are these lenses for sale new or used?

Looks like FCP now carries replacement lenses. They look to be ZKW style.

Hahaha, I know. I sent em an email for some pics. I wonder if I can detach the glass from the plastic surrounds and then use some silicone to glue the glass on to the BOSCH surrounds.

$60 a pop is not bad.
