Hello all
Easy question I hope, Will the headlamps and indicators off a 98 9-3 fit onto a 1994 900.
:)
Thanks

They will fit, HOWEVER - the turn indicator lighting is slightly different...

The NG has reverse indicator lighting in the turn signal housing, whereas the 9-3 doesn't - so you will have a lame lamp socket if you switch over to the 9-3 indicators (unless, of course, you dremel out a hole for them!).

Hi Ted, Was thinking just the front lights / indicators as aposed to the rear clusters.
But thanks anyway.
are many of the other 9-3 parts compatible- ie exhaust / backbox ?
Thanks for the info fellas

I'm not so sure about that. The US 9-3s should still have side-assist backup lights; it's the European models that don't, and that's true of the NG900 and the 9-3.

My 9-3 has them, Ted.

Alfi, when you put the car in reverse the 'headlights' throw light back towards the back of the car.
