Have you received/installed yours yet?
Got them on Friday last week! I havent had a chance to install them, temps were in the single digits for a few days and its been rain/snow/cold pretty much since. Hoping to get them in this weekend. Do you have pictures of how you routed the wires to the battery? And, has your fogging issue gone away?

Nice! I don't have any bay pics but it's easy to route the passenger cable around, I just zip-tied it in a few places. I've been planning to cut the harness down on the driver side (it's way too long) but haven't done it yet. I think the fogging is pretty minimal if not completely gone now.

Post some pics once you get them installed!

I messaged Osram about the inner lights and this is word for word the response I got...

"The inner projector does not have any function. There is no light source integrated."

Seems pretty weird to me they put a faux projector in them just for looks. I'll have to check the housing closer and see if there is access and/or a bulb wired to it.
what a waste, they could've doubled up projectors and made it stupid bright.

I think it's due to overall light output restrictions with ECE-approved headlamps. After a certain brightness, it seems like headlamps require integrated washers.
Which, if you're an aftermarket manufacturer of headlamps that's not really feasible so they probably just called it good after the one projector.

Be a cool upgrade if you wanted outrageous lighting. Pop open the lens on the Osrams and look into getting the other projector working

Quick question for you all that have ordered these lights from overseas, did you have to pay the 20% VAT?

For those who ordered it from blauertacho4u, how much did you end up paying in euros? If you don't mind sharing.

Lights were 671.55 before DHL and paypal fees. Total with shipping and paypal was 760 Euro when I ordered mine back in October for the MK7 version.
... And I thought I got a good deal

Decided on them due to the price mainly. I was looking to do an OEM Bi-xenon retrofit, but the cheapest I could find the GSW Bi-xenons was $560 USD a light - And that was without modules. I could have gotten Euro R Xenon's from Eacca for cheaper than that, but then I found the Osrams and Zero's posts on them.

I am ordering mine from their site now. It looks like the total has come out to 903 euros. This includes Paypal fees of 50 euros, and shipping at 120 euros (you could get the much cheaper option of 25 euros but it will be coming slow boat, expect several months waiting). The lights themselves are 783 euros without VAT. This is for the MK7.5 facelifted Osram headlights.

Edit: Just under $1,100 dollars with conversion. Don't let Paypal do the conversion, it will be like $50 or more extra due to their conversion fees.
