Au contraire! Having a stealth 87 5KCSTQ with 5KS Euro lights, I can tell
you that's an illusion. The 5KS Aero lights are taller, but on the Turbo,
you have plastic/rubber surrounds top and bottom to take up the space. From
the top of the bumper to the bottom edge of the hood, the height is the same...
