So you only need one headlight?

Post in the wanted section and try be specific about what you want. E.g. Right or Left, Xenon or not, etc.

Also have you tried Goldwagen, they normally cheaper than the agents.

Spent many hours at scrapyards once upon a time - had a Mini 1000 and found a GTS Clubman 1275 instrument cluster - and it escalated from there ... ;)
