I've seen these before. Check the back sides. They are obviously knock-offs made in China.

PS: I'm still in need of a Euro amber, left side - E1 on the lense, not SAE

Why go to Latvia for those? Find a breaker in the UK and they'll be OEM and cheap.

If the pic has a close up, you should be able to see either "Bosch" or "Hella" on the lense. The "made in China" on the knock-offs will be harder to see since they are not proud of their junk.

I've seen just a few corners on the UK site. Germany has more, but most don't ship internationally. Australia is also a possibility.

i've already got them on mine, just thought i'd point them out to those who don't have them. came up on an e-bay "any country" search.

thanks for the tips!
