Is there a domestic (US) source for those H1/H2 Hella lamps?

I tried the 9004 55/100w with disapointment due to the low voltage getting
to the bulbs. They even started burning the lamp sockets. I did bite on
Competition Unlimited's wiring harness with th 80/100 bulbs. They do work.
The harness was made for a Toyota, I beleive, and includes two relays,
higher quality sockets and much heavier wire. While I am satisfied with the
quantity of the light output, I agree with Glen that the 4000 headlights
"just suck" in the quality of light dispersion.
