Default Brigand head lights

The Brigand head lights look a lot like the Peugeot 604 ones, although on the Peugeot they are separated into two separate housings on each side. Anyone knows if they are the same?

Off topic, but don't know how to start a new one.
Does anyone know about the Jaguar XJR (Supercharged) cars, around the year
2000?
Seems like an amazingly cheap car. Are there big pitfalls to watch out for?
Thanks!
Andy.

Thank you, mrbennetts!

Yes that certainly looks like it.

I believe Simca and Talbot were Chrysler owned for a while. "When you send us the engine and gearbox, could you throw in a pair of headlights for our new Brigand as well?" I find these lights make the Brigand look really cool. Peugeot took over the European Chrysler organization, and the lights are very similar to the 604s, although not quite identical.

So are the Britannia's front lights (that seem to have found their way onto a few of the Brigands as well) from the Talbot Solara/Chrysler Alpine, or any of the other cars in the Chrysler/Talbot/Peugeot stable?

They're similar to, but not quite like the Simca 1307's:

I'm going to answer my own posting. These headlights were also used on the Rolls Royce Silver Spirit and "rectangular light" 1980-87 Bentleys.

I have in the back of my mind that they were also fitted to ERF trucks of
the same vintage
