From memory (and assuming you are not talking about a xenon
conversion), you need...

2 headlamps (£135 each main dealer)
2 filler strips (not sure, £25 the pair BICBW)
connector thingy - I think it's all one connector on the new ones,
rather than separate headlamp and indicator.

When I was considering this (on my 300 series) the parts man was very
helpful and let me lift the bonnet on a couple of forecourt cars to
see what was what. He also had the parts explosion on his computer,
which showed what was needed. It was much more complex for the 300
series!

He also said that one of the mechanics had done his and it was pretty
easy. You'll get a few quid back for your headlights on ebay too
(they are about £38 for Series II ones from memory).

Disco 1 and 2 headlamps are identical except for the black inserts in
the Disco 2 ones which make them look a bit 'newer'.

£38 from the main dealer, so $125 is OK, but probably not worth the
effort of shipping etc. Probably rather cheaper from Beamends or
similar.
