Also kind of confused about which bulb does what. The projector is obviously the low-beam, I assume the reflector right next to it is the high beam, I guess the clear reflector on the inside is the marker (although it doesn't look like an amber bulb), and the amber area on the bottom is the turn signal.

Any news on this? Has anyone attempted to contact a Euro part dealer and get part numbers, pricing, etc?

Any idea if they will essentially just plug in, or will we need to also come up with a ballast for the HIDs, and wiring harness or something for the daytime running LEDs?

Also, thats 285 per lamp, with or without shipping?

Appreciate the information :)

So pretty much $1k. If it included the ballast and the wiring is simple, I might do it. But I'm guessing they'll need a lot more work than that. Looking forward to hearing the results of anyone attempting this.

As excited as I am about swapping for UK lights, I haven't seen anyone consider if they will be made in LHD. I've never had HIDs, and don't know if they can be adjusted to compensate or not. Perhaps it's a non-issue. If that's the case, I'd be game!

The euro lamps are dual-xenon with an LED daytime running light. I don't have any other information regarding the wiring. The euro Focus manual does not provide much more information either, though it is much more detailed than ours.

Do you have a link to the Euro Focus manual?
