You will need to replace the grille and other related hardware. The
bezel for the quad light is a different shape than the factory lights
on your car. Aesthetically speaking these are a downgrade from your
existing setup, but this is a cheaper way to H4 lights.
The only possible donor cars are the 1984-85 US spec Audi 5000S and
96 A4 2.8 quattro
84 5000S 2.1 turbo
80 4000 2.0
