Wow - great prices!

Can you tell me how much the quad headlight set up (2nd picture - right and left sides) would be shipped to Canada as well? S4N2J9 is my postal code. :)

I can't believe all those NOS parts in that first picture either... You definitely have a parts supply advantage in Nigeria owning the 505, as pretty much everything I get has to be shipped from the US.

Hi Rabin,

Yes, like i always say, there is no 504 and 505 parts you cant get here in Nigeria, both brand new and 2nd hand/used parts in good condition, even complete engines, differentials, gearboxes,etc.

If the one you are asking for is the double round headlamp, the price of the set is N5,000.-Five thousand naira ($33- thirty three US dollars). The two headlamps in the 2nd pic on the left is of two qualities. The set of the brightest of the two (the one at the right) is N8,000- Eight thousand naira ($53- fifty three dollars), while the set of the dull one is N4,500- Four thousand, five hundred naira ($30 -thirty dollars).

Like i earlier posted, i will have to check in the courier offices the prices for the shipping to USA and Canada. The problem is that they may ask to see and weight the goods before telling me the price. But i have to find out first. I will try and make out time to do that tomorrow.

Ikenna.

ikenna, im not interested in a set of lights or anything, but just wanted to say thank you for your efforts - the peugeot community, out of all the other model-specific groups ive been and am still a part of, is always showing me that its made of truly helpful people who love the car, and are willing to go an extra mile for a faceless stranger, just because we all dig the same funky french 4 door.

dude, you are awesome.

also, im buttering you up cuz maybe one day i will want to ask you about some random part, lol =)

Hi everyone,

Today in the evening, I drove to UPS and FedEx courier companies, as you can see in the pics i attached in the earlier post. Their both staffs said they need to need to know the weight before they can give the price of shipping parts to USA and Canada, which are the same price. So, please i will need whoever will want me to purchase any parts for him to try and find out the weight of the part to help know the total amount it will take to buy and ship to his/her destination, before sending the money.

Anyway, i asked the to give me the price for 5kg & 10kg , incase the headlamps weight 10kg.

UPS: The UPS staff gave me the 10kg price only. According to her the price for 10kg with their box is N49,460.($328-three hundred and twenty eight dollars.). The addition of the value of the Headlamps, N80 ($1-one dollar).

FedEx: They gave me the prices of 5kg and 10kg. 5kg price is N24,971($165-one hundred and sixty five dollars). While 10kg is N43, 214 ($286- two hundred and eighty six). FedEx appers to be cheaper, but only if the parts to be sent fall into these two Kgs. I wouldnt know the kg of the set of 505 headlight.

The Bank Naira rate of one USA dollar to Nigerian Naira currency for now is N151 (one hundred and fifty one naira). You can google and check the conversion rate yourself.

Like i noted earlier, the shipping cost might be very discouraging. Its upto you guys.


Anyway, my mobile phone no is +2348052811236, incase you want to call and find out more about the availabilities of 505 parts here.

Ikenna.

Wow....what a shock on those shipping prices!

I'll pass, but I might get desperate later. I'm just lazily looking for now, since it's the deep of winter here (below freezing everyday and difficult to work in the garage). My searching will pick-up in the spring.

I appreciate the effort in the shopping for parts. Had not the shipping prices been way outta line, I would be your first customer.

Great pictures too.

Please, i forgot to mention that if you are install 505 Euro headlight, you will need to attach its chrome on it. The chrome brings out the beauty of the headlight, as you can see on the pic taken from mine. It shouldnt cost more than N1,500 ($10- ten US dollars).

Since the UPS and FedEx is very expensive to use, i believe using freight & shiiping companies would be cheaper. You can make the enquiries from your end online. Or if you have anyone,friends,relations,etc that is lives in Nigeria at the moment, find out from him or her how they send goods/items to US or Canada. It might make it easier and cheaper. Since parts are very cheap here when converted to US currency, avail yourself that opportunity to get them from here. They are very much available, no matter the model.

Ikenna,

Do you have normal mail service in your area? for example, I can mail thought the US Post Office, a part to you at substantially less than the estimate you got from UPS and FED Ex. As an example, I can ship up to 20 pounds (9 kilo's) to Nigeria for $58.50 US.
The box is 12 inches x 12 inches x 5 1/2 inches.

You might check with your regular mail carrier for rates. You could start yourself a nice little side business!

Good luck!

Bryan,

Thanks for the suggestion. It didnt even cross my mind cos Nigeria actually has a standard post office which definitely will be cheaper than the privates (UPS and others). I will check them tomorrow. Will update you on my findings from them tomorrow.

Hi all,

Its 11am here in Abuja. I left NIPOST (Nigerian Postal service office) about an hour ago. I got the shipping cost to Canada & US from them. The naira-dollar exchange rate for now is N153.00 (One hundred and fifty one naira only).

As for Canada:
1. 50 KG: N66,500 ($435).
2. 20 Kg: N29,800 ($194).
3. 10 Kg: N15,800 ($103).


For USA:
1. 50 Kg: N75,500 ($493).
2. 20 Kg: N17,500 ($114).
3. 10 Kg: N16,500 ($108).

Like i said earlier, check the weight of the headlight or whatever parts you are interested in getting from here in your cars, cos the weight will be the same. It will help to determine the actual shipping cost. Am not sure the headlight set would weight up to 10kg.

Ikenna.

I finally got around to installing my eurolights. Wow, what a difference.

I decided to list all of the info on the lights, so someone doing a search can benefit.

Valeo 060307 G042M made in Argentina 03102037
Valeo 060308 G043M made in Argentina 03112037

They have CIBIE printed on them.

I'm sure the business I bought these from made a huge profit. I didn't appreciate that, so best of luck for others sourcing these parts.

Any parts company that has a contract with Valeo should be able to get these lights with these part numbers.

While doing the left light I came across a large plastic box with a relay in it (see picture). What is this for? I had to take it off of the mounting bracket, so the new light fixture would fit. It is now just sitting in the space previously occupied by the rubber air intake nozzle. I took off the rubber hose air intake nozzle. It has 26years of oil/grime on it. I will have to cut it, since the relay box in now in the way. Looks like 6in would do the job. Before I cut this nozzle, I need to know if it is expensive/rare.?

looks great! what type of bulbs are you running in the headlights?

here's a link to a thread talking about the relay box, scroll down to post #15. the poster recommends moving the box, which would give you some clearance.

as for the hose, you have an xn6, right? the "nozzle" in that area is probably the intake for the air cleaner...here's a diagram:

if item #3 (air intake pipe) is the item you are talking about, probably not the best idea to cut it. you can probably get a used one in the future if you need it, but NOS pieces are pretty rare.

Wow,

great detail on the response... especially with the drawing.

I'll leave the relay box alone.

I'm going to get a section of hose to approximate the length I would have had remaining (if I had cut it).

I put in Sylvania SilverStar 60/55W. I would have gone with the Ultra version from the same company, but the local cops have pulled people over for those until they showed the packaging (proving they're legal). I don't want to be hassled. These are readily available at my local PepBoys parts store. I considered a comparable Hella and some brand called Pilot (in the tuner section). I chose based on price and reputation. I like the difference. Much...much better.

The front of my car looks great.

Steve
