If you mean the "round European GOLF headlights", yes, but you will need
a new rad-support and a new grille of course.
A2 Jettas in europe had always rectangular headlights - European
headlights of course - that did fit the same rad support and grille as
the "aero" lights.
To elaborate just a bit, all A2s (85-92 Golfs and Jettas) have
grille/headlight setups. To switch between the three OEM setups in
(small squares on the 85 Golfs; aero headlights on 85-92 Jettas, 86-92
and 86-90 GTIs; and 16v-style rounds on the 90-92 GTIs), one needs the
appropriate radiator support, headlights, and grille. You can get a
(Euro-spec 8v Golf style) setup for around $200, probably; you should
to find a quad-round (Euro-spec 16v GTI style, similar to US-spec
for around $300. If you do go to aftermarket lights, you may also
do some minor wiring work and install relays; most of the aftermarket
suppliers sell European-spec lamps, not the US-spec crap that we got

and headlights...they may or may not have radiator supports)

and grilles...I suspect they can get radiator supports as well)
I think you will need a new radiator support (suitable for the round
headlights) and a grille.
Of course you will need the headlights, and fog lights if you are going that
route also. ;-)
Some 92 GTs or GTis had round headlights.

I found the best price for me locally was $350. CDN tax inc. for the rad
support, grill(no emblem), 2 headlights, two foglights and some wiring and
bulbs. Should be cheaper without the fog's. I got it from Autobahn
Dismantlers out of Langley, BC Canada.
The Sob story of it. I did the switch cause I busted up the front end and
had to replace it all anyways. Then 6 months later I smashed all my new
stuff in a freak low speed spin. ( The only two accidents of my 8 year
driving career) Don't even have any pics to remember how cool it looked.
