I had the standard headlights on Daisy, and driving Miss Daisy at night was an adventure, really needed a man with a red flag to go first as the light output was pathetic.
I fitted these LED replacement units and, wow, country lanes were no longer a ditch visit waiting to happen.
Fitting LED bulbs is an MOT failure, fitting LED Headlight Units as a whole is permitted. Mine are also DOT approved (probably not, made in China, but looks kosher).
These came in at about £50 a pair, lots on eBay at that for each one - sold mainly as Land Rover replacements, but fit any 7" headlight shell.
Low Beam is well spread out in front of you and covers the kerbs left and right. High Beam is straight ahead. Dipped is not to the left, its straight down, so you do not need beam changers for continental use.
The screws holding the old retaining ring were rusted solid, so I soaked them and left them for a couple of days. Some came out, some sheared off so I replaced them. Standard size is M4. With the rusty hole, I put in M5 stainless ones, they self-tapped, even if they were not supposed to.
They include "switchback" side/indicator lights so you have the option of connecting them or not - up to you. The adapter cable is not required if fitting to an NA or Eunos, the standard existing fitting works.
