    Any other places I could be looking for Second Hand Audi parts?

    Hey guys,

    So frustrating when you can't find the parts you need. Have been searching Ebay, and scrappies for 2 weeks for a facelift passenger side headlight unit. Found 2 but in appalling condition - worse than mine with rust inside the lense.

    Any other places I could try does anyone know? Seen a set and asked the seller if they'd split on Ebay but no reply after 2 days

    There's so many new s3 8P parts available it's crazy - obviously the older stuff is harder to source...

    Found one: AUDI S3 PASSENGER SIDE HEADLIGHT HEADLAMP (2002) | eBay BUT the lens is scratched to bits

    Even though they're breaking 5 S3's according to the title that's the only passenger light they have. The search continues >>>>>>>>

    If it was cheap you could maybe polish out a few of the scratches and make do until you found a mint one then sell that one on

    True I'll keep an eye on it - anyone know if the lenses can be easily swapped as my original lens is in good condition.
