    Headlight options?

    A3 8l pre-facelift headlight recommendations

    It's time to upgrade headlights. Would people here recommend doing the mod (cutting the sheet metal) and fitting the facelift lights? Or should I be looking at an aftermarket solution ... realise it is personal taste - just wondered what people think.

    I quite like what RichA3Turbo has fitted here:

    headlight upgrade, is this the right choice...?

    And Dre_S3 has done here

    Post pics of your A3/S3

    However these seem to look OK...

    AUDI A3 1995-2000 CHROME HALO HEADLIGHTS

    But perhaps they are crap. What do people think? This a good alternative to the mod or should I just man up and get the Dremel out?

    Not sure about DRL ones

    AUDI A3 96-00 CHROME AUDI STYLE DRL HEAD

    think they might look a bit naff. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

    Go for the genuine facelift lights (2nd hand) and if they're badly oxidised do the wet n dry restoration method.

    The poor aftermarket ones are notorious for bad condensation and quality.
