    They will fit your car but I'm not 100% sure if it's plug and play of you need some kufatech adaptors also if the lights you want are bi xenon I'm pretty sure you need to retro fit washer jets. Which may result in a new bumper. If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will be along to correct me.
    SPEC: ebony pearl black ~ auto lights ~ auto wipers ~ half leather/suede interior ~ armrest ~ anti dazzle rear mirrior ~ coming home/ leaving home function.

    MODS: flat bottom steering wheel ~ bluetooth ~ cruise control ~ rns-e ~ MY09 rear lights ~ s3 pedals ~ s3 air vents ~ LED interior light pack ~ facelift buttons ~ dension ~ SDS ~ Aliminium inlays ~ full grille conversion.

    FUTURE MODS: lower ~ black edition rear ~ s-line/facelift front ~ black headlining ~ BBS CH-R or Speedlines.

    Depends on whether you want to do the full job or just a cheap half job. The Full Job will benefit with Official M.O.T's places passing you because in January there is a new regulation where you have to have Washers and auto levelling for your lights. But doing the half job might not pass you for them Official M.O.T places....unless you can get them to pass you ....depending where u go.

    Half Job Involves :

    1.kufatech adaptors
    2.Coding

    Full Job Involves :

    1.kufatech adaptors
    2.Coding
    3. All the Equipment for Washers and Auto levelling .

    oh!! thanks for the reply.
    i think the half job seems more attractive coz my car will be 3 years old next november.
    what do you mean by coding and how much are the adaptors.

    for the 'half job' you need the obvious new headlights, and then this adapter (assuming the pic of 'your car' above is your car on a 09 plate? if its a 10 plate then you would need to choose the correct cable on the right) : KUFATEC GmbH & Co. KG - Xenon/HID Headlights - Adapter- Audi A3 8P & 8PA Facelift

    once you have the adapter and the headlights you would then need to refit the new headlights, re-wire in the new adapter and then code the car to accept the headlights... if you need, i can do all this for you
    A3 Sportback 2.0TDI
    Dark Headlining, Bose, Alcantara Leather, Lights Pack

    MODS:
    S3 facelift, 19" RS6, RS3 Grill, TTRS FBMFSW, A5 S-Line Heated Seats, Bi-Xenons, Auto Lights & Wipers, Eibach Sportlines, S3 brakes, Cruise, Pioneer HU, Reverse Camera, OEM Parking Sensors, Auto Folding & Dimming Dumbo Mirrors, LED Tail Lights, S3 Pedals, Tints, Carbon Trims.
