These are the only LED headlights I've seen that are E-marked therefore legal in the EU: https://www.carbuild...lth-headlamp-7  There may be others but I haven't seen them.

 

Cheap LED headlights are a real scourge on the roads these days.

So, let me get this straight:

They're sealed beam and sold in pairs.

£522 plus shipping.

If one should blow, that'll be another £522 plus shipping.

I'm sticking with bulbs, for the present, thanks.

I know that LED headlights are not cheap, but like everything else, the price comes down as they become more popular. If you shop around you can see these Trucklite ones cheaper.

(Some are sold singlely).

Also Trucklite EU give a three years warranty and they do get quite good reviews.
