    prefacelift A3/S3 headlights the same?

    Hello ASN

    The outside part (indicator) of my offside headlight keeps falling out and hanging down due to the clips being broken.
    Are the A3 2 piece headlights the same as the S3? I have found a replacement indicator part but its listed for an A3......the seller is pretty sure itll fit an S3 but not 100%. Anyone know?


    Cheers

    Not sure if the fitment are the same, but the S3 ones cost loads from dealers and are very rare 'used', because they have a chrome thing inside them, in front of the bulb.

    thats brilliant!! thanks for that!!

    also does the chrome cover that covers the bulb actually do anything? or is it styling? if i cant get hold of them off danny 22 i may just bite the bullet and try the A3 indicators

    Just for styling methinks, it matches the chrome xenon part.
