Just a pricing datapoint and info tidbit:

I had to replace a stock U.S. headlight on my 85 4000sq (got broken by debris on
the freeway).  Dealer price was around $200.  The 85-87 4000sq has an integrated
lens and housing.  I think the older quattro 82-84 had a 4 light system with
more conventional lamps, in any case pre 85 is different.
