Welcome to the fray.

And yes, there is a difference between turbo lights and aspro (100/5000S)

Probably easiest to take a quick gander at the Audiworld model descriptions
(pull down menus) to see the difference. Your turbo car would require
like an 89 200 or later (thinnish retangles, with two bulbs/lamp), the
normally aspirated
cars use a taller trapazoidal shaped lamp that would also require
retrofitting a
grille from the normally aspirated cars. They are single bulb/lamp and hence
don't have
quite the lighting performance.

For sources, you may want to try PG Performance in Vancouver, BC (sorry,
don't have
the website addy, someone on this list will) as a start. As far as I know,
they should be
able to get either type of lamp. Just be prepared for the ride down the
slippery slope,
they are rather pricey.
