Default Where are people getting the SWB spotlights from?

They are not going to be wired in so the cheaper the better but I want them to look the part. Any recommendations other than waiting for the spring beaulieu autojumble?

Don't really need them, would have to trace the wires back to the car, can't be bothered with the hassle for no advantage

The number of times they will help vs the faff of finding which of the taped off bits of wire are the front fogs doesn't really work for me. I have the Mercedes or the truck if I have to go somewhere in bad weather so they would only be used if I got caught out. I can live with the beam from the headlights for those cases.

Just looking for the easy life.
