Any help much appreciated guys
Yup, those are the 4 SMT High Power LED flanks in my picture. You could try shooting V-LEDs an email or give them a call and ask if they have a European distributor. I suspect they don't but it's worth a shot. Good luck!

The connector for the puddle lights comes in at an angle, it doesn't point down. So the LEDs on the flank are pointing straight down when installed.

White wrapping? You mean the white base connector? I don't remember any wrapping on my V-LEDs.

It depends what you get. If you get everything including the 3 front domes, the 2 rear domes, the 2 door/courtesy lights, the 2 visor lights and the trunk, the subtotal is $120.93.
