    Audi A3 8L Facelift Headlights

    Has anybody got the facelift lights for sale?

    I want some as my Audi is R reg and has the older style lights.

    Please let me know if any one has.

    Thanks, RYan

    They are not loose after upgrading so dont know where you got that idea from, I upgraded my S3 99 with facelift xenons & they have the same fittings as the pre & only things you have to do is cut the wings out where indicators are & maybe change the new connector plugs over depending on current wiring.

    Thanks for the quick rpely. I will order them now
    Facelift front headlights for next week or untill I come across a good deal.

    Got a good price to tint my windows for 120.

    I am thinking of a 70% tint... as I really want a light tint. Is there anything lighter?

    Would I be "legally safe" if I did the front with 70%'s?

    But thanks for the info.

    Can I ask what tints do you have?
