I've had a non-turbo 5000 with and without euro's as well as a turbo with
and without euro's. In both cases the US-spec lights are horrible and the
euro's are amazing. If turbo euro's are out of the budget I would consider
changing to a non-turbo grille and euro lights, but do be aware that even
though non-turbo euro's are better than US-spec turbo lights turbo euro's
are even better than non-turbo euro's.
Currently my white 5ktq has US spec lights and my black one has euro's. In
the white car even with the high beams on you can see that the lights on the
car behind me are so much brighter that there is actually a shaddow in front
of the Audi. In my black car the euro low beams are brighter and light more
road than the high beams on the white car. The euro high beams if shined
directly at the sun would cause an eclipse if you were on another planet on
the opposite side on the sun ;-).
