Euro Headlights for 1990 Coupe Q

Hello all!

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 
potential sources?
