    I think the headlights will fit butthe coupe has different indicators.What you could do is measure them and compare as closely as you can before buy...........

    Of course you can !!
    Mine was a facelift (ie > 96?) and had the Hella headlights that use H7 bulbs. I've got saloon projectors with H1's now (with HID kit)

    I have :


    The part numbers for the 4 pin plug are discusssed on this thread :
