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
