    Owen,

    Hmmm... those look different than stock. The ones i have seen DO NOT have the angle inward (see pic below). Are you SURE those are FERRARI lights or ??? Was your car a Euro that was converted for US?

    That looks like a repeater light fitted to my Mondial

    Steven,

    My 308 is an 84Euro. I called Dennis McCann and he did not have the ones I need. He sent me two amber lenses like the ones in your picture. Unfortunately, the diameter of the center tube which holds the light bulb was to large for the fender, probably by at least 1/4".

    The lenses I'm trying to find are Carello and I'm hoping that Jeff @ Ferrari/UK may be able to help. I'll call Italian Car Parts tomorrow.

    The lenses are correct, now I just need to find them. When I do...buy 4!

    Philjay50...Those look to be them!

    If you know of any places across the pond that may carry them (Maranello Concessions, Ferrari UK, etc.), please let me know. I'm going to email Jeff Howe @ Ferrari UK tomorrow and check with him.

    As everyone here knows, there is relatively little consistency from car to car, especially the semi-older ones which the 308s are part of that group. My car was built as an '83 (November '83) and titled as an '84 (Feb of '84). That may have been a transition time for front fender lenses and other parts.

    Oddly enough, I've seen the car and met the gentleman that owns the 308 that was directly in front of mine on the assembly line. His lenses are like the ones that Steven (below) posted.

    Later tonight, I'll post a side-view pic of the lense.

    This is what makes this hobby (obsession) so fun.

    My euro 308 was built in October 1983 and has the same lenses as the first post.
    I've seen other Euro 308's with round lights in the same place. Go figure.

    Thank you Jeff!

    If #60669900 (which is listed for USA Mondial) is for the top picture, just let me know how to order them from you. I'll probably buy four (4). 2 for now, 2 for spares. Do they come with the rubber gasket or are those ordered separately? If separate, I'll need two of those as well.

    My personal email is "ferrari308@att.net". You guys in the UK are awesome!

    Let's close this deal!
