License plate bulbs W111 coupe

Is there another way to identify the license plate (US) bulb for my W111? I've managed to buy the 5w/12v festoon bulb but in each case it was slightly longer or slightly shorter than the OEM and won't fit. How do I get the correct length bulb and where? (Local auto parts stores are all shorter and a specialty bub shop's was too long)
