    How deep are your pockets?

    in a word , No? The shapes are different i believe, Bumpers are different, wings and bonnets probably need changing.

    You might need to have headlight washers for MOT as its becoming a rule or something

    Pre-facelift xenons is your option really, but may require some wiring in........




    await a proper expert though as im really not 100%.

    100% will not fit, requires full new front end I have done this myself, you will be better of fitting pre-facelift bi-xenons instead a lot cheaper.

    anyone on here selling some replacement bulbs that arent yellow and wont cause any issues for my A3 (like wiper issues)

    I hate my yellow headlamps at the moment - ill check later as im not sure if i have bi-xenons or not

    Not the only one, I have done the conversion myself on my old 3 door s line, that came with factory bi-xenons and the led drls were just plug and play with coding and I never got any errors and levellers and washers worked perfectly. What is the dash light you are getting?
