Not knowing whether or not the 89 has the same type of headlight I had
on my 91, I'd say $185 is a screaming deal if they are the same. Of
course, this could be your opportunity to get Euro lights... OK, so
they're $329/side + shipping and labour if you don't put them in
yourself, but...

You can get a clear (!) adhesive plastic-like cover from Stongard in
Bellevue, WA for about $32/side. Almost invisible to the eye and doesn't
degrade lighting performance.

For an Audi, well, yes :-)

See my answer to 6.
