But that stock headlight is crap..
The euro switch, yes. But why would you have to buy the euro headlight to then replace it with the TT system?

To get the separate headlight reflectors?

Not sure but Tourtech's web site says it is not compatable with the the US version and some wiring changes would be needed. But this is an excellent question. Maybe you dont need the headlight.

What reflectors? You don't need reflectors.

The whole headlight (us or euro) comes out. Am I missing something?

Fwiw, I already have all the light I need at this point. Euro headlight, switch, hid, rigid Led. (just the headlight alone is a straight swap, no electrical mods).
My point was that I would have picked the TT setup at the time, but not with an additional $400 mark up. I might as well pick one up while visiting family in Europe and get the vat back when I leave the country.

TT is incredibly expensive. That light setup surely is nice as shown above. Thanks for posting the pix above.

Bingo - no reflector required, as this is a complete lighting system (low beam light, high beam light) in a custom windscreen with brackets, wiring harness etc. Euro switch would be a nice touch, but again, toggle it if you want. If you don't order the DE/DE projector lights, but opt for the more expensive Xenon high beam, that also comes with its own ballast etc, so nothing else required as far as I know.

It is possible! But they have to be new/unused to seal them

Holy sh.. What have I done with just one pic
Today I made some pics and videos to compare high and low beam with TT headlight.
Will upload everything tomorrow
