W123 US spec headlights wanted

Hello from Australia. Are looking for a set of US spec headlamps to suit a W123. Need them as I want to use higher powered inserts which just wont work with the Euro style lights we use here in Australia.

It occurred to me that with you guys converting to Euro lamps there must be a few good sets sitting on peoples garage shelves?? Any help much appreciated.

As I recall, they drive on the opposite side of the road. So, swapping wouldn't work, as the beams would shine the wrong way.

This is correct, LHD and RHD have a different lense. The idea is that they point the beams slightly out of the way of the oncoming traffic.

Not a problem for the set I are looking for as I will just put RHD inserts into them.
