Brought the Indicators to this posting to bring things together! ;)
Got the left indicator from Chevyworld today and just gave the silver edge a touch up. Only thing is that it is a Hella lens and the Original I have is a WTF. No problem unless you go looking for differences! 8) . Opel had three manufacturers 8O 8O WTF, Hella and Bosch!!!
Was cheaper than the 136 Euro plus postage I would have paid!! Made new rubbers for both sides to be the same! :mrgreen:

Is 'WTF' a real brand or; is it an 'unknown' hence 'WTF'?

Hullo and thanks,
WTF is an OEM brand as the original Aluminium base on both sides on the Opel are the same ;) I happen to have a Hella base as well! :D
Part Numbers are different K23332 - WTF & K22642 - HELLA.

"WTF is an OEM brand "

When I read it the first time, I immediately thought "Oom Johan tou taalgebruik."
Then realised it is an OEM brand, not a chinese replica.
