The ones I got seem to have gone from Ebay (including my supplier), though a few US suppliers have em.

Aliexpress and Alibaba (china suppliers) do have em if you search '5.75 led headlight'. There are three very similar styles so be careful to get correct one with shallow rear housing, central round nub on rear, comes in a brown box and a wavy lined pattern around the edge of the glass.

Something like this might also be an option as they're really flat. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5-3-4-5-75in ... 1438.l2649

One last point to note, Mine come on with the headlight's main beam. I had these installed on my last MOT and the tester didn't mention them or even test em I don't think.

Did you have to mod the light unit's fins to get em to fit in the mount, if not what mount are you using?

Mount is the plastic ring type looks the same as your ones. I was expecting to have to mod the fins but they clipped straight in have they possibility altered the design.

Hi Gents,

I'd like to order a pair of these to replace my feeble driving lamps, how do you find them Matty?

The one's in your link are for some H4 lights, presumably that means they have a low and main beam function? How do you wire them to ensure that they are using the main beam and not the low??

Cheers

Jamie

The (standard) spotlight plugs on the Libra are H4 type but only have the terminals/wiring in them for the main beam. So if the spotlamp you buy has an H4 connector it's plug n play.

Note, these LED spotlamps we bought don't have a proper low(with cutoff)/high beam function they just are bright/bit brighter!

Perfect, thanks.

Having used the lights a few times now in the dark I think they are a vast improvement over the original one although these where well pass there best. A no brainer if you need to replace you units anyway and great service from China.

Further to this, I have now got LED headlights too. More details/pics can be found on the FB page & http://www.sidewinderforge.co.uk/netlib ... tmlb6.html

Not had a proper road test yet though, nor know if they will pass MOT*?

* one of the reasons I wanted lights that needed no mods so can easily swap back to the halogen units.
