Would anyone have an opinion as to the better headlight switch? A genuine Lucas switch or a Lucas-type switch?

Thank you in advance.

My opinion is always a genuine, even used, before an aftermarket.

i would say it largely depends on if its a pre-unit or not ........some repros for pre-unit stuff look like repros (missing the name Lucas on them)

it also depends on if you are looking for concourse/parts book correct. I would go with what i could easily get but would prefer OEM every time
