Euro Headlights for 1990 Coupe Q
With the recent traffic on the Euro headlight upgrades for the 5000s,
4000s, and UrQuattros, I wanted to know whether an upgrade was
available for my car, a 1990 Coupe Quattro, and for other list members
with the 80 and 90 series cars.
Audi still hadn't improved their US spec lighting as of 1990. I feel as
if I could easily out run my meager headlights, and my foglights are
pretty useless (they glow very nicely, thankyou, but I can't see the
road on a rainy night). Before I pay $150/foglight for new units to
replace the pitted and cracked ones currently on the car, I figured I'd
look into investing the money in upgrading the main lighting.
Two more questions:
1. Is my car equipped with relays for the headlights?
2. Looking through old issues of EC (Then VW/Porsche), it appears that
clear plexiglass headlight covers used to be available for the 4000/5000
series. Does anyone know if they are still available?
It would be nice to have some extra protection for the expense $$ Euro
lenses-considering how pitted my US-spec lenses are at 73k miles.
Before adding myself to Zafer's list (Thanks for taking the initiative,
Zafer!), I'm going to call Ron's Parts. Does anyone have other
