Do you remember a couple of years back when the Spanish government tried to 'tax the sun' by charging people with solar panels, and i believe they wanted you to 'feed' into the national grid any surplus electricity you produced for free.

Yes, I remember. There were threads about solar energy on the forum.

The news now is more encouraging. However, as the government is not yet formed, politics might well get in the way again.

Solar power is paving the way for a rise in self-generated energy in Spain. Installed capacity grew for the second year running in 2018 with a 94% hike on 2017 figures – and 90% of that was self-generated.
José Donoso, UNEF managing director

Installed solar power in Spain passed the 5,000-MW mark of installed capacity last year, indicating a decade of vertiginous growth. Despite a slowdown in 2012, solar energy is once again powering ahead with both companies and homes installing the technology in a bid to curb costs.
In 2018, 261.7 MW of new solar power was installed, of which 26 MW are connected to the grid and the remainder, 235.7 MW, self-generating installations.
José Donoso, managing general of Spain’s Photovoltaic Union (UNEF), believes the 80% drop in the cost of the technology over the past 10 years is responsible for the upward trend, coupled with the European Union’s self-generated renewable energy drive.
For years, self-generated energy was punished in Spain by administrative obstacles and fees from the central government, such as the so-called “sun tax” levied by the Popular Party (PP). However, Pedro Sánchez’s Socialist Party (PSOE) government ditched the tax last October and is now preparing to regulate self-generated electricity practices and the financial compensation for feeding energy into the grid – which could increase the value of the technology

Does anyone know if the headlights must be changed from right hand drive to left hand and if buying and fitting a used set from a breaker is acceptable? Thanks for any advice.

Yes and you have to check the reversing and rear fog as if only one of each are fitted they will be the wrong way round.

So you will have to replace both rear clusters as well.
