    If I paid would anyone want to fit facelift lights to my pre facelift 8l? please

    Just wondering if anyone from Gloucestershire area would like to fit me some facelift lights to my pre facelift a3 I'd pay just that I am not technically minded when it comes to wiring and I can tell I would probably break something, or damage out of frustration.
    Thanks

    To do it properly, You will need a new slam panel as the pre lift has different fittings for the older headlights. I only know this as had to replace a slam panel on a 2002 a3 and the breaker sent me one from an 07 or pre facelift and the headlights didn't fit into the sockets. I cannot comment on wiring differences, if any.

    Good luck!

    All you need to do is cut the wing in order for then to fit. There is a wiring guide if you search for it on the forum.

    Do you mean cutting the wing to allow outer edges of lamp to fit ? Sounds like there is quite a lot of scope to bodge that as will all be free hand cutting job if I understand right? What about painting the cut edge of the wing to avoid pealing etc and weathering damage?

    That's right, cut the wing as in here Audifans.net: You are using an invalid IP

    The guy in this thread does spray the cut panel so it doesn't rust which is easy enough but because the light masks it you won't see it.

    Its easy enough to do Neilb, but take your time and do it right, I'm sure you can do it
