Hi all. My imported left hand drive Flavia is about to undergo its MOT and if possible I would like to fit the correct dipping outer headlamp units. All suggestions welcome.

H1 plus side light is v difficult to find.

These work when you put an H4 connector adaptor on the end of the wiring loom. Plus you get 2 main beams if you wire in another relay and supply ( to save the existing main beam relay contacts from burning out).

You may need to tweak the mounting tabs to match the bowls.

Hi Tim. Just checked and the side lights are separate units, down by the bumper.

So, am I correct in saying any set of 5 3/4 without sidelight fitment will fit? Say Triumph Stag for example?

I think it likely that most 5 3/4 lights will fit. After all, this was before the days of bespoke headlights. I had all manner of different makes of round headlights in Betas all just held in with the standard retaining ring.

A bit like Italian cars using British braking systems?
