Actually, if it includes both the glass fronts and the backs, $500 is not 
too bad a price for a set of the true german euro lights (w/integral driving 
lights) which fit on the 4000 and later quattro coupes.

Yes there is. They are clear acrylic and cover the headlight and wrap around 
and cover the side marker lights. I have had a set of plastic covers on the 
lights of my 86 GT since the car was new. The first set gave out last spring 
and I went searching for another set. Checked all the local auto parts 
stores and came up empty. While at the local dealer, I asked them about a 
set of light covers and they had them in stock. Give Stammler Audi a call at
