Fair enough, I see your point. 


Just so everyone is on the same page here, when you say that the repair shop stuck a chrome light in your focus, can you confirm the entire interior of the light is chrome?


Like this: http://www.european-.../mk2flchrsw.jpg


Or are you saying they replaced it with one where the majority of the interior is black with that 'little' corner bit being chrome?


(I say 'little' just to describe it, it's not a dig)

just the corner bit is chrome

You serious? The housing is a clear plastic yes? Inside the plastic to the left hand side is a yellow indicator to the immediate right is  a patch of black (that is the colour of the inside of the light - Black), the next you see is indeed chrome, that is the surround to the headlight bulb, this is chrome on every single light whether it be the black inside, silver inside, mk2 or mk2.5, the same for the sidelight etc. If you have a 'black' light NOT like this one, then I suspect you either have a custom home made job, or some aftermarket light.  :wacko:

this is the bit that looks chrome to me .i know about the rest.
