I need a spare bulb kit to drive in France - what do I do if none of the kits fit my car?

I'm going to France for 10 days and have a 2012 Alfa Romeo Giulietta. I need to carry a spare bulb kit to comply with French law. So I went to Halfords today to buy one. I entered my vehicle registration into their system and none of their £10 kits fit my car. Have you any ideas please of where is best to go for a cheap spare bulb kit for my car?

What I did was carry a universal spare bulbs kit. The fact is that most spare bulbs cannot even be fitted by a driver so this old rule became archaic about 25 years ago.
