    LED Headlights from new 8V

    So... as we all love to swap things around and retro fit, i've been looking at having LED rear lights purchased and fitted at somepoint in the future. The question i have been wondering though is/has anyone already thought or thinking about the new LED lights units being put into the new A3's, rather than retrofitting xenon's...?

    Cheers

    Chris

    Making them fit the front end is the key & if the network will recognise/accept the headlights, although there is an led headlight coding option, it doesn't mean they will be compatible.

    Saw yours when looking.

    The rears are more of a formality when I have the spare cash to be honest.

    Just curious on the new front LED's they'd started putting in.

    Saying that I also found myself spec-ing a new A3 Quattro S Line. Started at £29k finished at £41k lol
