I have been on the look out for a Cerbera now for a while, and have finally found a 2002 Cerbera that ticks all the right boxes.
The only exception is that it has the factory fitted blended Tuscan style headlights.
Is it possible to retro fit the original style large single type headlights, and if so what would be the estimate cost.

I'd suggest that's a biggish job so I'd call S&D in Blackpool for a quote:

Why change how it was made in the first place apart from wanting a retro look?

You will struggle to find a 2002 or later car without Tuscan style light. The V8's got it as standard (so converting one of those will probably de-value the car) and while their were an option on the Speed 6 a lot of buyers spec'd them.

I totally agree with what you are saying.
I just don't like the look of the blended Tuscan style headlights on the Cerbera.
Plus I prefer the interior of the mk2 cars.
The only other alternative is to buy and older car and refurbish the chasis respay and retrim the interior, but then it's ££££££££££££

You could draw a line around them in black pen.

Presto - unblended pods.

Your money, your choice, but I'm trying to think if I've ever seen anyone on here mention putting the newer lights back to the old one's ? smile

Should raise a smile in the body shop, if there's an old car in for new lights & a new car in for old lights smile

My Cerb had the original lights and that was one of the reasons I bought mine, I liked that look.

However just before mine went i had to replace the reflector as it had rusted. When I removed the light ect it apears thay there was nothing stopping the raiin getting into the lamp housing (i don't mean around the glass bit, I mean between the fibreglass housing and the body of the car) both sides were the same so looks like once of the niche features of the car.

Just something to think about if you want that look. (controversually - I personally still prefer it over the tuscan look)
