WIPAC are reasonably priced and good enough for most peoples' needs. You can find them just by Googling , or try the website of H.Bowers (UK), who may also have somemore expensive lamps if you want to go rallying! I have just had some non-dipping LED inner headlamps from Bowers , and they are fantastic! Only problem comes when I switch to dip beam, it suddenly seems to go dark!

In France Oscaro sell Cibiés for Triumph Dolomite at a very reasonable price.
In Germany try Autodoc.

@Oldconn: UK product may not work since I need LHD glasses (for german TÜV/ MOTmandatory), however have asked WIPAC for LHD types.

Mine comes from Germany, lights are Hella, I've not found the bill in the huge amount of papers the previous owner gave me.

Understood! I use <LHD lamps on my French-registered GTE , no problem in ordering them from UK .
