Does anyone know the compatibility of headlight fairings? My 99 855i has seen better days.
Would a 98 fit?

As chris says 99 and up to 06
Will /should interchange.
98 and earlier are totally different.

Errrrm if you mean 885i most definitely because that is what is on mine,good old Triumph wouldn’t do me a silver one in 2001 so in the end bought another set of panels and headlight surround of a yellow 885i and had them sprayed silver,a black Bagster tank cover hides the black tank....

The original body work must have been in the loft 15 years!! Along with brakes and wheels they will be worth something one day...

With hindsight should have left them and had a yellow 955  :icon_wink:
