A loose term

Headlights.

They really are shite on the MK1 after a drive in 'that' weather just now via Surrey Hills.

Time for a loom from one of the forum sparks.

Oh yeah they are rubbish! I rewired the whole front end of mine and used a CE1 fusebox, and added a full set of Cibie CSR H1 lamps. A-m-a-z-i-n-g and actually better than a lot of new cars even, with 55W bulbs too. Took some work tho and the lamps were quite expensive, but it was worth it as was driving it daily all year round
