I have a set of these to go into my FC

They are the same as I fitted recently....will need re-adjusting as reflect different than stock....put plenty of releasing fluid on the small screws on stainless surround before attempting to undo :D

Thanks again guys

I have found a company on the Costa Blanca who can supply and install a European set. So will go with them once the car is in Spain

Cheers Chris

Has anyone ever fitted Halfords beam deflectors to an FC?

I’m sat in Portsmouth waiting for the boat with a set but no idea where to position them on the head lamps. Older cars aren’t covered

Any guidance would be great
Thanks Chris

On older headlights there is normally a triangular type shape that needs to be covered, hold over & you will see it stops the beam that would shine into oncoming traffic.

Thanks for all your help guys,


I managed to fit the deflectors correctly in the end. The bottom right hand corner of the reflector needed to be covered to prevent dazzling on coming traffic. I will take a photo when I remember, just in case anyone else should ask the question

By the way, I disembarked the ferry in Bilbao yesterday afternoon, then drove the old girl non stop, apart from 2 petrol stops, down to Valencia. 435 mile run. Add this to Tuesdays 320 mile run down to Portsmouth. I have had a great 750 mile road trip.

Real shame I got up to the rain this morning, so the roof has to stay up until tomorrow

Thanks Clive,

I would say it’s to escape the winter roads with all that salt. But no idea about Sweden, guess you couldn’t get on the roads for snow

Hi folks

Just starting the import process and I have been asked for an EU conformity certificate!

Anyone have one for t2 vert? Not sure if they are generic or car specific

Thanks Chris

I’m being told it is a certificate which confirms the vehicle technical data like emissions etc. Apparently  Mazda can provide it for a few hundred Euros.

The Spanish government use this information to decide the import tax. I got a feeling I will be in the top tax bracket

I’m tempted to take the car back to the uk and sell her there.

Oh, I think its called CE marking, or something like that sertificate....

Ill check and try to find if I have paper like that in my car...

Just curious,  if you sell it, how much would you ask for it?

No idea what it’s worth these days.

The roof has started to go above the pockets and there is a patch of rust bubbling on the wheel arch. So would need to factor that in.

Probably just put it on Ebay and ask for offers.

Btw, there shouldnt be import tax because its within EU. Any tax that you might have to pay is difference between UK tax and Spains tax, cause that car has allready paid tax when it came to EU
