Just make sure you purchase the correct lens for LHD

I've seen them for sale to USA from Germany's http://www.carparts-online.de/ . You need a web browser that can translate German website, and buy for your driving side of the road, but they sell both L & R side driving cheaper than most
Note: I don't know if they are legal to use in USA where they must be DOT approved to re-sell your Sprinter Certified, so hold onto the old ones in case your Sprinter needs Gov't inspection.

good deal
very cheap from this site
are these really good quality?
i wonder why if you buy the original headlights from Mercedes-Benz dealers the price has tripled or quadrupled compared to these? they seems the same product

US headlights use H7 low beam and H1 high beam & fog. The headlights from Germany use H7, H7 & H3, without any particular order mentioned. Because of the bulb differences, US bulb sockets may not fit the German headlight housings.

well the OP had a T1N. On the T1N lights, the bulb sockets come with the light assembly. there is a big multi-pin connector that plugs into the headlamp assembly...

The difficulty is the change for the headlight vertical adjust servos.
Some servos have a short actuator, some have a long one and they aren't interchangeable...

Cheers
