    Hi, welcome to ASN. Read the faqs threads at the top of the page you should find out in there if this can be done. A few of the guys on here do retrofits so they will advise you also. Where are you from? Post pics of your car up for us to see. Enjoy the forum.

    Is your s3 5 door? As said front LED DRL's require a new front end to fit plus coding and also automatic levelling and washer system installed if you don't already have xenons in your spec, if you have 5 door the rear LED lights can be fitted with some simple coding. If you have a 3 door there aren't LED lights available but newer style lights known as MY09 or MY11 lights which transform the car completely.
    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.

    As the others have said - fronts is a no no without getting a full face-lift (bumper, bonnet etc), but the rears are literally a 5-min job, straight swap. Lots of people have done them, and most (including me) got them from a member on here called Nigel (NHN). He's a top bloke and will sort you out no bother.

    Also, welcome.

    SB (5-dr) S3 didn't come out until the 8P3 facelift, so guessing it's a 3-dr.
