Doc here,

On the NEW Cooper , your BEST shot is going to be the dealer..

You could try Auto Zone on line under shopping / electrical / pigtails, but that sounds like a specialty item...

Shoot Painless and Ron Francis an email too ... they may make them or conversions..

Doc

I too am using the light in my 40 Ford Coupe. If you find where they can be had let me know, please. They look so fine in the little fat fenders

I ran into the same problem with Kia headlights. the junk yards don't keep the wire harness. they are cut up and sold for scrap. I think most of these connectors are dedicated and only come OEM. You can get the entire harness. $500 or so.

I finally found some individual metric connectors off some other headlights. I hooked them up on the Kia headlights and spliced a couple feet of good wire to each of them. I labeled each wire function on bothe ends. Then I terminated them in a single multi pin Delphi water proof connector.

You can get this stuff from Waytek or Ron Francis.

Don't the newer Mini Coopers have HID headlamps?
