I don't recall encountering these washers ('91 200q). Perhaps they were
added by previous owner to raise the direction of the DOT beams?

I drilled hole(s) _after_ the lights were in place. I installed the front
trim, then loosely fitted the side piece so I could mark the best hole
location (I seem to recall the hole location is most critical w/resp to the
side pieces); then I pulled the side trim away while drilling. Might be
able to drill with both trim pieces installed.
Sorry I can't help with the oem part# questions. I also did a stock wiring
installation with 0.25" lugs, but will be soon installing relays/harnesses
from Vortrag. The 0.3xx" designation mentioned recently also has me
puzzled, unless it refers to the spacing needed _between_ the lugs in the
2x2 connector array.
