    After a spirited driving session, I now have a broken headlight. A rock flew through and busted the whole thing, not just the bulbs. Other than the dealership, where do you guys get your headlights? I see that it's manufactured by Hella with the prancing horse trademark at the top left of the lens but I can't find ferrari on the Hella website.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    How desperate are you for the item to come in a Ferrari box? I believe the unit can also be found in a well know scandanavian truck!

    If I remember right it uses the same style Homofocal headlight as the Mondial-T...
    You might check the number on the headlight for a cross ref. with others.

    Ouch. No more night time driving for me, those headlights are too valuable to risk . Try Rutlands in GA. or maybe Butch Hooper at Italian Design and Racing.

    ToddB, you can buy just the bulbs.

    Blackspyder, please tell me more about the same headlamp on a well known Scandanavia truck... I could careless if the headlamp as the prancing horse trademark or a Hundai sticker, as long as it's the same rectangular one.

    Help :(

    I have a wrecked Black RHD 92 348TB for parts. All parts are in perfect condition. I am pretty easy on price as I wanna settle this wreckage before I get my F355. I do have a pair of headlight assembly. Please PM me for details.

    Cheers
    Jackie
