    Clear headlamps for US Spec A3?

    Anyone know why some have clear headlamps and others have the amber/orange in them? I'm talking about the US model A3. Where can I get the all clear ones?

    On the official audiusa.com site the a3 has these headlamps:



    But I've seen pics on here where it's entirely clear. Not sure if the clear ones are region specific or if its a mod?

    As far as I know it's just part of the requirements for US vehicles so any clear ones will be bought in from Europe I'd say. You just need to find a set from Germany/Italy/etc. with LHD models for a good price and take it from there.

    Darn , does anyone know how I can manage to get a set of these? A contact or website, also how much would a pair of OEM Euro spec headlights like this cost in USD?

    Is it possible to open up the headlights and remove the amber/orange piece?
