    headlight question

    Hi guys/girls,

    I'm new on here, so hi to all

    I need a little advice on changing the headlights on my Audi S3 2001 model. I've had a good look around the site but can't really find an answer, I'm sure someone will find it though lol...

    I would like to fit a set of these;
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AUDI-A3-1996-2...item5193303a6b

    I believe my car is a pre-face lift model, though I am not 100% on that. It has Xeons atm so am unsure if the above lights would be a direct swap...

    Thanks in advance.

    yours is a facelift i think. in which case these would bolt straight on. you would be able to sell your old ones for twice the price you buy your angel eyes too!

    yes your head lights are 1 piece then... i.e facelift. so those angel eyes will fit in the hole no problem. pre-facelift you need to grind part of the wing out like i had too!

    Cool stuff.. so my car is a facelift the lol... Thanks for all your help.. I have just one more question hehe My friend showed me ages ago a company that makes the standard headlights but with the inside black, you wouldn't happen to know where I could find them, would you? Cause that's what I like the look of and I'm also painting the grill surround black..

    Thanks again.
