Question XK Clear Corners or (Clear Turn Lights) ???

So I'm pretty new to the forum and I have been doing alot of looking around and reading to see what mods I would like the most on my XK , I used the search , and found that the clear corners were very rare and only found on European or Australian XK's, well I happen to be in Baghdad, Iraq right now and have even gone as far as having my interpreters going to local dealerships trying to find these euro headlights, A mass majority of Iraqi vehicles come from all over Europe while I was working to day I happened to see 3 XKs todays and all had the orange turn lights I happened to take a pic or too so we can try to clarify that Euro XK's don't come with clear light turn signals all available input would be much appreciated I REALLY WANT THESE HEADLIGHTS!!!!

I would assume that there were some model year changes or the vehicle equipment code in Iraq is different than say Australia.

Can you confirm that the Iraq Commander is known as an XH or is also an XK like here in the States? In Australia & Europe it is known as the XH which could be the difference in the lenses.

Dose the Iraq model have a visable radio antenna or is the antenna inside the rear passenger compartment glass like the other XH models?

I think that is the only hope. I have also searched all over. The front turn signal and headlight are one big piece. I think that is why the aftermarket industry never jumped on this. If you want a new clear signal you are getting a new headlight. My right front is cracked and need a new one. See if the UK guys can help me out.

I dont think Iraq will have them honestly. I think getting them from the UK or South Africa members on this site will be the easiest way. How come nobody else has done that? Nobody wants them that bad?
