    Cool LED envy!

    Hi everyone first post so bare with me! Currently own a 54 plate 1.6 A3, absolutely love it (pictures will be up soon!!) However I LOVE the look of the newer inbuilt LEDs in the 2011-2013 model so I done abit of research and came across a minefield of possibilities however most of these are cheap conversion kits on eBay and I don't want a cheap look. What's the best way to install LEDs that look as if they were standard and not some cheap ones on the net? Anyone done this before? Thanks guys

    I should specify I'm talking about the side lights. For example 180097d1274357668-audi-bmw-mercedes-led-side-lights-audi-a3-copy.jpg

    Its going to be either a very cheap route or its going to be a very expensive route. Expensive route is buy the full facelift front end and then fit and then paint. Will cost a lot. Price will end up being in the £1000s

    Cheap route is buy the chavvy headlights thats out there. Price will be between £150 to £300 depending on brand and design.

    Me personally would go the expensive route however I would gradually buy the parts one at a time so therefore more cheaper compared to buying everything together. There is the off chance that complete front end would come up for peanuts.

    All upto you mate!

    Yeah my budget is nowhere near enough to start replacing the front end I think it will have to be buying the LEDs and just fitting them, anyone got any good recommendation's?
