Rear Light Clusters - problem solved !

Cleaned up the garage and found some parts you want to sell? Or are you looking for that one part? You can advertise or request just about anything that has to do with the Volvo 480 in here: brochures, towing-hooks, antenna's, etc etc...

Hear hear, this is great stuff to definitely be watched very closely! Both my sets of rear lights are pretty good at the moment but they won't stay like that forever...

Thank you 😊

Same here; lights in good condition, but I’ll still buy a couple of sets as there’s no guarantee that these will be made forever.

unfortunately, when I was speaking to the gentleman via email they're limiting it to one set per person!

Not quite, it's one set per car, you have to send a scan of page 2 of the V5, so currently jifflemon can order 3 sets, dcwalker can get 2 and I could order 3 more - another reason for entering multiple-480 ownership !

Presumably to stop the profiteering? If so I applaud.

now who wants to buy a set of shiny new back lights? 3 pairs available, lets start the a thousand euro a set..... :rofl:

exactly !! Their aim was to help 480 owners, not get used as a wholesale supplier. Totally unfair given the favour the man making them is doing us.

just how many V5 do you have :wink:

I only have two, but not really needing any (at present) :hopping:

I can live with the 'slightly' faded/matt finish, might be easier to apply a matte finish to the central section rather than make the outer two sections shiney/glossy?
