Of course it was NOT worth it!  TAP quoted you $485 and you went to Germany
and brought them back yourself for about $400.  What a big hassle for $85!
You're lucky the USA didn't make you pay duty on them!  If they cost you
$400 in Europe, I don't think anyone is going to grind down TAP from $485
here in the US!  Peoples' time is worth money you know!

P.S.  I'm glad for got your lights; you'll definitely enjoy the improved
