if the ur-q euro lites are anything like the ones for my '91 200q, the lens
can be disassembled from the reflector housing.  there's a gasket between the
lens and the housing, as maybe a rubber boot over the bulb.  all of these
should be considered "consumable" including the lens.  I understand that
lenses are about US$25 over in Germany (make sure you get the ones from the
continent, and not britain--as they'd say it, we drive on the wrong side of
the road here)
