Changing the headlamps is the most common thing to do when you get a euro grille. You don't have to, you could keep your OEM headlamps and just mount turn signal lights behind the grille.

ah1f39 took some pill bottles and used them for turns:

There is a how-too about recessing your turn-signals behind a euro grille. They are hidden that way, but still work as required by law.

Else, you can replace your headlights with some that have turn signals built in.
