    Ease of fog light retrofit

    Hi I have a 1.6 a3 and it doesn't have fog lights and I was wondering how easy it is to fit them and how I would fit them?
    Any ideas?

    Depends on the electronic board fitted, but 90% of the time its compatible, as its a 1.6 I would hazard a guess its an 1.6 fsi so maybe original as in 03-06 ish?

    Need a loom, fogs, coding, fog area fitment available & grills, does help having some technical abilities tbh.

    Do you need them supplied/fitted?

    Didnt know they did a 1.6 in 08 tbh, thought they'd phased them out, everydays a school day.

    Yep fogs and grilles fit - as per above - need fog lights, grilles, loom, new headlight switch with front fog setting, possibly an uprated Central Electronics Module (lowline from that era didn't support fogs) plus patience...
