    On the first picture you can see the light is pointing up a little. However, I like the idea of the A5 lights on an A3.

    I'm sure that can be fixed.
    I'm more interested in how the back of the headlights fits. If the bolt holes align or if it is a complete hack job. Hope not...

    you can see it angled up here:


    that being said the fact that this is on a prefacelift S3 and you can see how it follows the line of the bumper and wing... very possibly do-able. though you would probably have to replace the ballasts with ones from the A3/S3 so that the car can talk to it properly.

    ahh ok so having just brushed up on my Polish skills i can see how he did it... so a full headlight transplant with the internals of the A5 lights into the housing of the A3 but with some extra filling and sanding to fill up the extra area within the A3 light... then the addition of electrics to get the lights to work with the OEM A3 harness. the other thing is that the guy originally had halogen headlights so he did a 'bi-xenon' hack which he could have avoided if he just did a bi-xenon wire and coding upgrade so that the car would talk to the headlights without so many electric bits.

    here is what the headlights itself looks like after the transplant:



    Overall damn good job!

    Very difficult! considering he totally dismantled 4 units and then moved the A5s across and rebuilt it back up without damaging anything then added to the headlight and also the wiring involved. not something i would attempt

    Audi A5 Head Lights on Audi A3

    I had the a4 avant as a courtesy car and loved the DRL lights, that would be a cool mod!
