There are a number of sources including Adsit, Performance Products and others.<br> <br> I have Euro lights on my Euro 240D and they are great. You will have to move pins in the connector that goes to the headlight assembly. You also should know that if you use high wattage bulbs with them you will cause damage to the light assembly internally. You don't need high wattage bulbs with these lights though. What makes a good light is the shape of the reflector, so standard H4 bulbs in the Euro's will outperform high wattage bulbs in US type lights.<br> <br> Also if you really want the best of the European lights, find the four position vacuum switch to put in your dash and connect it up. You will be able to raise and lower the lights from the drivers seat. This works great. I drive a lot of Farm road at odd hours of the night. I raise the lights while on the farm road to help see the deer and escaped livestock. I then lower them when I get on the highway.<br> <br> Good luck,<br> Larry
