Go with the Euro lights for your model series - 86 to 90 should work fine. They mechanically are a direct bolt in, BUT, the electrical connecter is different, and the headlight wipers are different. The electrical connectors are not a big problem, just means buying a connector shell and re-arranging the pins. If you are going to run non-stock wattage bulbs (I didn't), you will have to add new wiring and relays. The headlight wipers are a BIG problem - the mounting bracket is in a different place on the Euros. You will either have to make an adapter, or buy the proper motors and wipers ($$$$), or leave off the wipers (I left mine off). Check the search function on Euro lights. A lot of comments have been made on where to buy, how to wire, bulb and relay articles and links. Regards,
