    well they're already red.

    Leave them well alone. Pre facelift lights are pretty gay, tinted pre facelift lights of any tint would be incredibly gay.....

    Try and find a set of facelift rears instead....

    I bought a set of facelift rear lights for mine and it's amazing how much newer it made the back end of the car look!

    I wasn't a fan of the facelift rear lights on a black car, but seeing the comparison of those pics, think I'll be changing mine! They definitely look much newer\fresher.

    50 each on here Audi - Euro Car Parts UK

    Are the euro parts ones identical to the Audi ones? I was trying to compare pictures. The clear bit on the Audi ones seems different?

    Yep they sure do, most probbaly my favourite mod looks wise to my car.. and i got mine from ebay, they are direct replacements for pre-facelifts. and they fit perfectly and are exactly the same as oem ones, as u can see from the pic to the s3 next to my car..

    and as for them being on a black car i think they look the best on black as they stand out better!

    trust me mate, its well worth doing, is yours black??

    mine is blue.

    I dont realy have a spare 100 lol but they dont look good, i need face lift ones,

    reer lights are a easy swap but am i correct in thinking that the front ones do swap but you have to cut the origonal wires and wire they up to the face lift ones because the looms are different??

    Trust me u DONT want to tint your lights , it will look really chavvy.. the guy who i brought my car from had done that.. and they looked horrible.. see for yourself..

    obviously its on a black car, but to be honest facelift lights look really nice on ming blue..
    compare it to the pic i posted further up the page.. when id changed them.

    yep rear dark tinted lens's look a bit tacky, although a very small step in shade may not be too bad. I've seen some late models with tints on the front and they don't look bad at all if you are into the dechrome look. In fact it's probably quite complimentary.
    I'm into chrome , but I prefer your alloys to the alloys in the S3 parked next to you. Now that too looks tacky and does not enhance the overall look at all. Because of the dimensions and shape of the A3 shape I don't think any kind of alloy in chrome would suit the car.
    02 plate - 2002 - 225bhp - S3 - Ming Blue - completely standard - nuff said, OK there's a centre armrest, sunroof, BOSE speakers & black leather recaros, oh and the non OE chrome pack !
