And, just for the future edification of anyone who might give a damn...
The Depot Euro headlights will accept, without any modification, wiper motors (and, of course blades) from a Euro car.
The only other thing you'll need are the escutcheon panels that run under the lamp assemblies and bolt to the fender and radiator support. Euros are different from US federalized models however, I would postulate they could be interchanged. Upon very close examination I found the holes in both types of panels to be punched in the same places. There is a hole for the wiper shaft to go through, which is round, and another for the washer nozzle hose fitting, which is kind of an "X" shape. While the holes are punched in the same places, they are reversed in Euro vs. US. If one is willing to make that "X" shaped hole round (i.e. bore it out) US escutcheons can be used under Euro lamps with matching wiper motors and wipers.
Euro wiper motors will not bolt up to US lamps and vice versa.
I had Euro motors and wipers all ready when I got the Depot lights and they bolted on without any problem whatsoever.
