You can replace the grill, rad support and headlights with an aftermarket
kit that duplicates the scirroco setup- two large round high/low H4 bulbed
lights, and two small round driving lights with H3 bulbs ( I think).  I did
this after gravity well from the singularity contained within the factory
DOT spec "lights" sucked a deer into the front of the car. Only explanation
I can think of as to how they keep all the light inside the headlamp.  I now
have 80/100 high/low, and 100w driving lights that come on with the
highbeams.  Under bumper 100w Bosch fogs too.  Can you say daylight?  Wife
followed me with my car at night and left the highbeams on by mistake.  I
think it burned the back of my head, and the headrests got warm. You do need
to install relays underhood.  Mine came from Ron's Parts if I recall.  I
recommend it highly. Cost was less than one cheesy factory plastic "light"
and grill that the deer broke as it entered the event horizon.
