    Need help sourcing this bulb.....HELP!!!

    I have searched everywhere and cannot find a bulb for my vintage Bosch driving lamps. It looks similar to a single post taillight bulb but is nearl 3/4" in diameter as compared to 1/2" for a standard automotive bulb. I have attatched a photo of the bulb holder next to a standard 1157 bulb to illustrate the diff. Can anyone tell me where to find a single filliment 35w bulb that will fit? Thanks in advance

    Your local dealer would be my best guess. They carry the lamps, and the lenses, so it would only be logical they carry....

    Looks like that might be the one, thanks Dan.
    Surely these have to be available somewhere in the states????

    CP: If what you have is the mounting for a US version of through-the-grill fogs, I got a fistful of the bulbs from Beechmont P/A about two years ago. I think that the boxes in the garage at home still have the part number on the outside. I am off tomorrow for my daughter's wedding in Tampa this week-end so it may be a couple days before I can check. Other wise call me tonight. As I remember they are 35 watts.
