    What Fog lights/Lamps do I need?

    Irecently bought an A3 2.0TDI that came with the S3 kit. There were no fog lights fitted although there was one in the boot which I was told just needed fitting and I just needed to order another one. Anyway popped the bumper off today and the fog light that came with the car wont fit. Below is a photo of the fog light that I have got, I believe it is the wrong one? Could someone point me in the correct direction for which fog lights I need?

    Thanks,
    Andy

    Stuck already, found 2 different types of 8P fog lights, some are a circular fog light and some have a flat bottom. Can anyone shed some light?

    This is what my front end looks like

    That looks like an 8P sport foglight? The flat bit at the top. But as mentioned you need the S-Line or S3 ones which are slightly different, also you may need the plugs.

    Sport has the flat edge & the Sline/S3 has the round type, the Sport ones have a different connector/wiring to the sline/s3 ones, so if yours was a sport before, it needs rewiring to suit.

    Hi, my car is a 2005 S Line but it has the exact same bumper as the silver one in post #6. I need a passenger side foglight as mine is broken but does that mean if I buy one off eBay the wiring may be wrong as mine is s line?

    If yours is the flat edge early s-lines, then that looks fine.
