      Will they fit your car without modifications?

      I think George is trying to find out what type of headlights you currently have. There may be some modifications needed to install them as from what I understand the European models were a bit ahead of ours in the way of lighting. The old quad style does not provide as good lighting as the Euro spec big glass lights. If you are doing it for looks then I would recommend getting open units to replace the sealed beams. My 87 has the quads and I used Hella's. The item is #HL79566.
      My car.

      You might be able to get someone in the US to swap units with you on turbobricks.com. People are always looking to switch to the Euro lights here in the USA. I like my quads though.
