Actually they're about the same price (one's in GBP, the other is in €). Works out to be about €0.7 difference. Anyway, point of the links was to give you the part number (082374).

I agree that a 7" headlight is much better(I had one myself), but I'm guessing that SMcQ owners will want to keep the smaller headlight. Also, I had no problems at all with my headlight brackets - I just turned them out a tad and the 7" headlight fit straight in.

The UK dip pattern one is part 082371 and with the osram night breaker bulb upgrade brings the beam into the "acceptable but nothing special" category. I suppose with 5 3/4 conventional set up it's all you can expect.
A bulls eye projector might work better behind plain glass.
