this has been driving me insane..

Postby blackedz26 » Thu Sep 06, 2012 12:33 am

Wanted to ask this for a while, but felt dumb asking, but anyways:

Has any one taken Camaro headlights of the late 80s and modified them to fit a beretta? They look so damn alike to the euro, and i would imagine much more easy to find.
Ok, i used my dumb question token for the month..

That is my only issue with the euro head lights. It makes the car look even more like a damn Camaro. LOL

Lol. I think the cadi cateras look like a newer corsica. I like the euro lights ;)

there was a member that made his own euro lights, had a white beretta i believe it was totaled in an accident due to no brakes, I have been looking for pictures but have been unable to find any

They are very similar yes but I'm sure there are some differences between the two. I know that the Beretta ones did on some models actually have a height adjustment knob in the vehicle that was connected to them. But for simplicity of just having a euro style lights you might be able to get it to work. You'd have to make fully custom surrounds.

It'd be worth a try. Beats trying to find euro lights, then paying the price for them! Then worrying if someone is going to hit u and ruin them..

There is a for sale thread with a set... But yes they are expensive I'll admit to that one.

You run the same issue if you even drive your car.... for every part on it. Let alone the euro headlights.

I always thought the 93-97 Camaro headlights would work cause if I'm not mistaken the older gens have the big honking sealed beams, I think the the 93-97 are similar to the older cutlass supremes of the 90s and let's not forget the really hard to find sealed beam style on the late 80s sunbird

the 90's camaros are thinner than the beretta euro lights. I always thought the 88 chevy pickup style would work
