280CE headlights

I have euro headlights on my 1979 280CE but now moved to another state and I need DOT/SAE lights. What's the least expensive way to get through the inspection? Anyone have a source for inexpensive stock type lights? I'll just put the euro lights back on after I pass.

Are there DOT bulbs that will swap in?

$63 lights? Glad I brought home that $5 junkyard spare!
