The twinlights website does sell the individual low and high beam assy's, they do look very similar to the original Hella made ford units.

The 'headlightdoctor' (headlighthospital.com.au from memory)has told me that their units are cheap quality (although the prices aren't) - they're most likely made in asia and imported.

Not sure on the model number.
I have had a look at the Hella Catalogue ... and there's nothing in there now for the ED though.

I know where there is an ED that I might be able to check ... but not sure if there'd be a visible model number though.

Getting replacement lenses would be difficult though ... you may only be able to get them from Ford.

The lamp assy's are the same as used in the EF/EL/XG/XH XR's.
Be an idea to keep an eye on ebay - damaged items do come up occasionally.
I take it you're after bits for the low beam projector (looks like a big magnifying glass) units.
