I have a Selectra taillight. Three LEDs (a big one in the center and two smaller ones on the sides), big reflector, and with a standlight circuit. I got it from a shop during a visit to Germany. I don't see it on Peter White's site, but if I had to replace it, I'd get the Toplight Line Plus.
These B&M lights are everywhere on German streets. While my sister was living there, I bought her a dynohub setup for Christmas one year for a grand total of maybe 130 Euros installed, including halogen front & rear lights and a hub already built into a wheel. Bikes are required to have self-powered lighting systems (at least, bikes that aren't "sport" bikes, like race-style road and mountain bikes), so there's no need to special order stuff like this. Not many of the LBSes in my area have any experience in generator lighting, if at all.
B&M is quality stuff. Go for it.
