I successfully adapted a pair of '75-'78 BMW 530i headlight assemblies to fit 
my '89 200q and used a pair of non-turbo sidemarker lights converted to use 
dual-filament bulbs for turn signals.  I had intended to make them look like 
the late model 3-series lights (which rumor has can also be adapted to fit) 
using a pair of GTS acrylic headlight covers but this proved beyond my means 
as the end result looked pretty crude.  I still have the four Hella bulbs -- 
$160 worth! -- if you or anyone else is interested in tackling this
