RE: Euro headlights for my 91 200

Why'n'cha pick up a copy of the Brit mag "VW Audi CAR", and check out
some of the British junkyards and parts houses? I bet used British is
cheaper than new "weeellllll, we'll have to call our top secret foreign
source, and perhaps condescend to call you back with a price if we feel
you are qualified to have such exclusive" parts. Boneheads. Why is this
so difficult? While you're at it, call US Customs and check out what you
have to do WRT import duty...
