    Belive you can fit them from an S6? Well think it is, their normally placed in the bumper, not totally sure on that one tho, or why youd want to as they will just make your existing headlights/sidelights look very yellow

    Might be worth popping to your local Halfords and asking the Ripspeed desk if they have any led light strips?

    Best bet really would be to check out some of the crusing and modifying based websites mate, its not the sorta thing that you will find 99% of people on here wanting to fit unfortunatly

    As far as I know, no direct replacement exists, but with a bit of work and enginuety Im sure you could build some into a set of standard clusters

    Basically your gonna need something like this:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Audi-S6-R8-LED...QQcmdZViewItem

    And find a way of cutting the bumper underneath the headlights etc and mounting them correctly (or alot of people run them in the bumper grills)

    that does look good...although the spot where they are mounted is already there, not a hard mod IMO.....defo not worth 210 to get it done..... think on ours it would have to be beneath the bumper, above the lower grills

    I think she means replace the whole light, as in will any genuine audi ones fit straight in.

    Am i right?

    Im afraid theres none that will be able to fit straight in, with alot of work you could get some to but that would require serious bodywork and not suit the car at all

    Only real option for LED would be some LED A3 Angel Eyes from ebay
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/96-02...spagenameZWDVW
    Their from america so may be left hand drive BUT they do seem to have an LED light strip along the top of the lights, not sure if thats any help for you.

    http://search.ebay.co.uk/a3-led-head...sid=p1638.m122
    Thats the selection on ebay atm

    It might be worth waiting, the BMW Angel Eyes really took off then they were available to buy, never know if the Audi style LEDs take off then you might be seeing them on ebay soon

    Its quite expensive thru the TT forum but I belive their put in very well, just not quite sure how they could be put into normal A3 lights without affecting the beam pattern

    Good luck with finding something that suits you tho, and if you need help with anything else feel free to ask on here, hopefully everyone will be helpful towards you

    thing is i dont really like them, coz looking at the TT it has loads of small LED's which make up a line of light under the headlight, which looks naff!!! while the R8 and A5 can pull it off because their LED's are far apart, and doesnt look like a huge line going across the front end, this is why its such a unique look!!
