M3 half track headlamp bulb help needed

Post by TadeO » Tue Sep 26, 2017 11:04 am

Hello, I'm about to buy front headlamp bulbs for M3 and wondering whether below might fit. I guess they are a bit larger than MB/GPW in diameter. But maybe description of theese below might tell if they could even might fit. M3 they have to fit is the model where marker lights came next to the headlamp on the bracket (not on the top of the headlamp housing).

I'm not clear which style headlight you have but, if it's the larger, early style mounted to the fender then the bulb is the same as used on Harley Davidson headlights from that period and they are reproduced in 6v and 12v Also, Rod Shaver has original replacement light bulbs for that headlight as well.
