    Facelift Headlight Conversion

    Hi all, Im pretty new here so please, if this has come up before - dont nag me. Just think Dae Jaaa Vooo

    Anyway,

    I've got a 1.8t 1999 but want to fit the facelift headlights but the (Wait for it) Angel eye ones see http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Audi-A3-8L-Ang...em190064130865

    I understand its not just a straight swap. Is there a forum out there that gives details on how to fit these bad boys? i.e. pics etc?
    From what I hear, its best to take the bumper off to do this.

    One more thing. Is the wiring the same? Do I need to cut and solder? if so has anyone came up with a diagram/solution or is there a wiring harness that can be bought?

    Ive just done this conversion to mine must say the angel eyes IMO look miles better than any others.

    Ive got a silver car with the black angel eyes ets them off nicely, Take the bumper off and they simply plug stright in to your existing connector.

    To wire the angels i had to wire them up to the sidelights though, some other brands you may not have to do this.

    I paid 130 for my lights, well pleased with them.

    Hi Jason,

    Did you fit the facelift angel eye headlights or the pre facelift ones?

    I want to fit the facelift lights to my pre face lift car but understand there is a few mods needed. I just wondered if anyone had info from start to finish on it.

    Cheers
