    The 5K turbo models had the "aero" (for aerodynamic, I presume) lights
and the non-turbo models had the large rectangular lights. You can probably
interchange them if you don't mind changing the grille, trim & headlight
pots, but I have never investigated this. From my personal experience the
lighting ability of the aero lights is pathetic at best; I think the larger
lights actually have better performance.
