The only place I found that had the vacuum servos on the Euro lights was , and they were used from a gray market car. I don't know if he can get new ones with vac servos or not. Also, the July/August Star article on headlight conversions to Euros describes the Hella part #s and MB #s for Euro lights with vacuum servos, and describes the installation for 86-89 models. The article also refers to the Star Tech editor having installed 500E euros on his 400E with the vac servos. If you want, I can give you info from the article, or the name and address of the Tech Editor. I was never able to find 500E euro lights when I did my install.

A company by me sells them. I'm pretty sure they have the vacuum adjustment, because all UK cars have it.
The company is called EuroCarparts and they ship worldwide.
The web address is
