As the title states, I am looking for one of these. Either original or one of the aftermarket models. LED doesn't really matter that much. As I have some white LEDs I probably will be replacing with. I just don't want to start soldering with a factory ring and break something and then have no low beam. So if anyone has an extra factory ring or one of the aftermarket ones they have no use for I would be interested.

There used to be some produced and sold by forum members (I think?), but this was quite some time ago.
Maybe someone who checks in on the Incandescent section might have some leads? Might be worth a question on there.

Edit.
just did a search and came up with Koala onion ring and Calipsoii. Nothing currently available that I could find though unfortunately.

Thanks. Ya I know what was available. I'm hoping to buy used

I couldn't find anything. I did see a Koala onion ring on the bay that had already sold by a US seller for 60 bucks.

Did you ever find a ring? I have an A2 that I replaced the original ring with a Collipsoi ring. I still have the ring and it been in a protective case with bubble wrap since I replaced it. I don't remember the color of the LEDs but I think they were red or white. I wouldn't have bothered with any other colors. I'm not really looking to sell it, but do you have anything you may wish to trade? If you need an idea, I'm looking for a decent P60 host. But I will consider other stuff too. Look forward to hearing from you.

Hey. Thanks for reaching out. Do you have a multi meter. If you put it in continuity mode, it'll light up the led if you touch the leads to the legs. What kind of stuff are you looking for? There's not really much I'm looking to get rid of unfortunately. Mostly incandescent stuff. But besides some bulbs I don't
wish to part with, I don't have much

Right now I'm out of town and unable to do anything. It could be as long as two weeks before I could ship. The E1 conversion LED looks neat although I do not own an E1. You've got two weeks, plenty of time to rummage around and see if you have something else. If you have nothing else, then I'll accept the E1LED.

Just FYI, I'm back in town. I'll do that multimeter test later today. I see you live in Ontario. I'm willing to do the trade, but you'll be responsible for shipping and VAT. I'll label the package "used parts" value under 10 CAD. That used to get the VAT waived. Is this ok with you?
