    Front Lights Upgrade on Audi A3 - 2008 TDI

    Thinking of changing front headlights on my AUDI A3 - 2008 Tdi.

    Basically my requirement is to change them with the ones having the daylight running light option but without changing the bumper and installing the washer system.

    Is there any straight replacement?

    Some information on item part number would help to start with. Has anybody done this mod, what else do I need?

    Please click here to see what sort of lights I got on Audi A3.

    if you dont want to install the washer system than there is no DRL option from Audi (would have to use the aftermarket stuff that doesnt have the right light power or look as good). the washer system is needed for xenons by a law requirement. you can install with out it but bare in mind its at your own risk

    i have done the install and offer the install to others who want it. have a look here for lots on info on the retrofit
    Xenon and Bi-Xenon... differences?

    for those to be fitted you would need a whole new front end...
    bonnet, wings, bumper, grill.... so not worth it if you just want DRLs...

    if your after that you may as well just get this:
