    Hi

    I've been looking around and I haven't been able to find a thread on replacing my 53plate lights with a newer models headlights(DRL in the unit) Is this possible, do I need any bits and bobs? Dying to know as it'd make a wicked mod the the 8p1

    Cheers.

    If you mean the ones from the 8P3 S3/BE etc you'll need a bumper, bonnet & wings. Also facelift wing mirrors with indicators in them.
    In other words, it's not worth it.
    Now:
    TTS, Leon Cupra R, MK2 Golf GTi 16v BB 3dr & MK4 Golf "GTi" 2.0 8v


    Past:
    S3 8P3
    A3 2.0T
    S3 8L REVO
    306 Rallye
    Impreza STi8
    Leon Cupra R REVO
    S3 8L REVO
    Impreza T2000
    306 Rallye
    MK3 Golf GTi 8v
    & more in between

    You can probably buy some aftermarket units on eBay that will fit. I've certainly seen them on A4s, but they look mightily pants.

    if you want the DRLs and are not bothered about them being the LED strips then you could always get the OEM bi-xenon headlights from the 8P2 (2006-2008) cars. all you would need is the headlights with bulbs and then a wiring converter from kufatec.

    it will give you proper xenon headlights, the DRL and also you get the xenon highbeam so its really worth it.

    here are a couple pics of mine to give you an idea of the lights.

    this is the DRL:







    and the xenon headlights:
