    Question New DRL / headlights

    I pick up my new S3 in 2 weeks time, but unfortunately it wont have the LED running lights.

    Anybody know if the new headlights will fit the none face-lift car...... if so major re-wiring hassle to fit them.........

    cheers

    Have to wait until the part numbers show up in ETKA, or somebody gets a facelift and whips out their lights to try them in a non-facelift model.

    I read in Auto express that the shape/profile of the front wings have been altered. This could cause a problem with swopping headlights?

    Not sure of the reliability of Auto express though!

    The part numbers for the new Xenon/LED headlights for the A3 convertable are now listed in ETKA. I assume they will be the same for the 'new generation' A3.

    I actually starting to prefer the new headlights style after the autoexpress S3 pic. It looks stylish and more aggressive than the old headlights, that is with the lights OFF though, I ll reserve my judgement on how they look when on when I see it in the flesh.

    Heres a comparison-



    The new lights just has better lines within the headlights and it looks darker also which is always cool!
