For the MK7.5 the lighting package for it is an full LED headlight. The higher trims on the MK7.5 come standard with them. I don’t believe there is an HID variant available this time around. The assemblies are quite pricey too (was told by an dealer tech around $1300 per headlight).

Here are some pictures and comments from local Chinese, this website is the sister company of Aliexpress (so those seller are basically the same)

It's cheaper but you will need a third party courier to process/pack it and send it to your country as they won't offer shipping to places outside China in these website.

I am still waiting and hoping some American brands will announce that they are going to make these rep lights.

But seems the market is so small and nothing is gonna happen soon
