    a3 aftermarket drl?

    hello guys i have been looking at some of the posts about people fitting aftermarket drl's to their a3's and im considering getting some but before i do i would like people opinions on them and if it is worth it? im sticking with my a3 for a few years now whilst i am moving house so maybe it may be worth it. do the aftermarket drl's look decent? do they have any problems with the a3's bulb warning system and trouble cutting the lights off? thanks anthony

    honestly from what ive seen yes, better to spend money on a prefacelift bixenon conversion which would look great and save the bodywork required with the facelift

    The facelift front end is coming round to me a little now but I still prefer the pre-facelift as the styling matches the rest of the car (ie not sharp angles like the new front end). The photo in P5SND's sig does look very impressive though! Although I think the new facelift looks best in S-line and S3 though (the standard Sport/SE's don't look quite as good for some reason IMO).
