    do E30 headlights actually fit in manta b?

    Just want to check this before I buy a set of new E30 headlights off a mate.
    I heard of someone doing this, but I cant remember who.
    I assume there would be some modifications required to mount them?

    if you are talking about sealed beam bmw headlights then yes the sealed beam bulbs fit fine. if you are talking about ellipsoids with the large plastic housings then no it would take some work to get them to fit. i recently pulled some 7 series ellipsoids to try to retrofit them into my manta and for now its more work than i want to do. later on down the road i will come back to it and make them fit though. the lens' themselves fit fine in the brackets but the rear part of the housing wont fit through the openings in the manta.
