Which European brands do you know that have great price/quality monolights (to avoid import customtaxes).
Any TTL 600W strobe type propositions ?

European brands......nope

You could look at the TTL version of the Godox AD600 with a AD-AC adapter.

Not European brands but these seem to be available in Europe without import duty:

Godox AD600B
Jinbei HD610

.. allegedly people are offering -20% off the asking price for the latter. They both look like good units.

Yes in fact i meant available in Europe, without having to import with import duties.
Those 2 seem nice, my price limit was around $540 (€500) for a 600W & TTL, would this be possible for this price ?
They all seem to start at 758$ (€700) on Ebay, there are even no cheaper alternative brands.
When the wind blows those guys down it wouldn't be cheap :-D

The prices are kept high in our area so you have to look at the UK and there the AD600 is more normal priced and the weakened Pound will help you also.

Update:
Have a look at Pixapro sadly the conversion is not as low as I expected.
