I have the saab mentioned above - which my dad has had since new. Its 5 digit odometer has hit 80,000 for the third time and the indicator lenses at the front and back are starting to fade to the point where it cannot get a warrant anymore. We have painted the inside of the lenses as a temporary measure, but are looking for new ones. Obviously there are no spares in New Zealand - would anyone know where I could find some or what sort of price I would pay for them?

Or you can keep them white and use an orange bulb.

I definitely need replacements as the plastic is gettting quite brittle and the repair jobs from run away carpark smashes are getting a bit much. I had a look of a photo of a 99, and the lenses on that are not quite the same - they are still a bit smaller. I will give the swedish guys a go.

Thanks again,
