    Question Quick question for facelift A3/S3 guys...

    Right Im going to get some of these side repeaters from ebay


    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AUDI-A3-A4-A6-...ayphotohosting

    Basically they are like newer Golf and Audi side repeaters but they fit on the 8L...
    Thing is on ebay it says they are suitable for A3s from Sept 00 - Aug 02 my car is slightly later than this so will they fit my car? I thought all facelift A3s had the same side repeaters?

    Cheers

    Happy New Year To All!!!!

    Anyway back to the thread, i agree with you silver they should fit like you say a facelifts a facelift and the tt ones are from 99- so i'd go with it and remember listings on fleabay have as much info as the lister knows and an enthusiast will normally know more, good luck if you go through with it and let us know what they look/fit like

    OK this is the item I ended up getting:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Audi-A3-00-02-...em150061934578

    Here are the pics before


    after


    Pic came out a bit crap and doesnt really do them justice. They came with amber bulbs so just left the same ones I have on the car allready but obviously these need to be changed

    I think you should get rid of the fried egg look.

    Sorry to bring an old thread alive again, was just doing a search and found this. My A3 is the pre-facelift with the square type side repeaters. Just wanted to know if anyone has fitted the newer oblong type repeaters to a pre-facelift? The hole in the wing is a square shape and the guy that i brought the car off of has put the oblong ones in there which dont fit properly, they just fall straight out. I can get hold of the square ones easy but if i can get away with keeping the oblong ones in there i will, as i think it looks alot more moddern.
