The outer headlamps are the only ones you need to replace for MOT purposes. DeLorean GO, Ed Uding at DeLorean Europe, and even the DOC shop have them. Not short on choice.

I've not heard of people using Audi headlamps i'll admit. Curious now.

These are the ones you need: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/302429567629?...1438.l2649
Please remember though they are not a direct replacement you will need to do some modifications to the headlamp buckets so they fit properly. I can supply the instructions around this if required. I believe the new headlight buckets Ed sells have a larger hole at the back to accommodate these lights.

Yes, I can supply info on doing that also, I think you can buy a kit as well that may work the same.

I'm sure these would fit, just have to make sure that they are for the correct country (as in point the correct way)!!

just picking up on this thread, i thought the Delorean go lights do not require a bucket mod, they come with a shorter side light fitting that does not foul the headlight bucket..
though i've yet to fit mine.

For the sidelights yes, but I believe the rear holes still need to be enlarged to accommodate the H4? IIRC fittings. The ones they sell are the ones in the link above.
