Your best option is to get a second set of lights and smash the glass on one set, and the plastic on the other. The glue used on the European headlights is much stronger than that used in the US, hence why it is easier for them to split theirs.
If wanted to try splitting them then people split depos by putting them in an oven/ using a head gun [y]
