Probably be around €1500 which would include headlight change. Rough guideline

It may also need alterations to the rear fog lights.

If it has 2 you are OK if it has only 1 it may be on the wrong side.

Do you need to replace the headlamps or would headlamp deflectors be ok to drive and pass the ITV.

Deflectors ( beam benders or whatever ) cannot be used to pass an ITV test.

You will have to replace the headlamp units not just the bulbs.

Could be very expensive on some cars. 

It might mean the costs of re registering are more than the value of your car !!
