You are out of luck. The truck was never exported to Europe, so no E lamps
are available. You have to apply for an exemption and pay the increased
tax.. I know, I had to do the same thing. If you are a resident in Germany,
the method above works. If you are a member of the EC, but not Germany, you
can import the truck to Germany and then sell it on to any country within
the EC and it will be accepted. In fact, there is a whole industry built up
around this problem. If you need more info, contact me directly.
