Of course it's much more expensive buying the parts outright... However, each multireflector headlight only costs around $250-$300 factory, so $1800 per headlight assembly is a bit steep without the bulbs, ballasts, or controller.
It should cost far less for them to do it at the factory, maybe charge no more than 2k for both lamps installed bundled with other features such as MFT or something. Not just a stand alone option for 4k.
The comment was that like on the ST its only available as a part of a nearly $4000 options package, not that the hid assemblies would be a stand alone option for $2000 or so. I.e. in order to get one thing you want you'll have to buy a bunch of other things you may or may not want or need.

The stand alone options comment was referring to how one would have to buy everything ala carte after the fact to make the system work rather than only paying the price differential for the housings, bulbs, ballasts, etc.

If the bulbs are a $1000 upgrade and they bundle it with MFT and something else I can see that easily making a $2000+ options package just like on the ST, which is a bit steep and bundles things together that not everyone would want or enjoy.
