    So, I see the posts on this subject range over 3-4 years, and as you point out the tech continues to evolve. I wasn’t able to fully understand/find explanation for the pros and cons so will try here: I am considering an H4 LED into a 6” after-market headshell. My hope is this would place a lower demand when idling/start-up given that I’m using a capacitor. The low beam is wired direct and while contemplating an on/off switch, I wondered if an LED bulb is a worthy alternative? Is the load less than conventional bulb? And I read references that these are not PMA/regulator friendly. I have PMA and regulator and ignition from one of the popular providers. Is that so, and why? If compatible, are they plug and play as this one suggests?

    You can buy packs of grommets from various hobby electronic stores online (used to be you could get them almost anywhere, but meh).
    As an expedient, I've often cut a short length of twin&earth, removed the outer jacket by slitting it down the side and laying that edge-wise into the metal hole. Get the size just right and it's a permanent fix as long as you don't mind a grey grommet.
