Default Re: us vs european Prius

Hi all,
I actually have my USA-model 2007 Prius in Italy since August, and need to make it EU compliant to register it. The interesting thing is a EU-model 2007 Prius is fully compliant, but no one can tell me what differences there are between the "compliant" european model and non-compliant USA model. Toyota is especially unhelpful in this regard. If they told me the differences off the assembly line, then I could retrofit (with European parts) those items that are non-compliant (headlights?, tires?, etc.). I've searched, and found several individuals who successfully registered their american Pri in european nations, however there seems to be no consistent changes that were made. That is, some made no changes while others added lighting
