    2007 Audi S3 with LED Running Lights (question)

    Just wanted to ask a quick question as im currently on the look-out for an Audi S3 as i have just sold my car and i was wondering is it possible to have the headlights with the Daytime Running Lights in them from the newer models in place of just the normal ones without as i have looked at a new one and really like the running lights on them but would much rather buy one a year old and save the cash mainly for a few mods and the fact i wouldnt have to borrow the bit extra to buy a brand new one. Not massivly important just thought i would ask.

    Many Thanks,

    Stu

    AFAIK the daytime running lights (LED ones?) are only available on the facelift 2009 model & those headlights aren't a direct swap without changing the front end too.

    Would cost you a lot to facelift an older car.
    New lights (xenons!)
    New bumper
    Bonnet
    front wings
    wing mirrors
    + Paint!

    The lights are a slightly different shape, hence the need to change all the bits that surround it!
    If I were you, borrow a bit of cash and just get the latest version

    Ah ok thanks for the quick reply, so if i did want them it abit of work then like said might aswell borrow or settle for the normal lights, no difference in engine or anything then just cosmetic facelift.


    Thanks,

    I think the emissions are slightly lower on the newer model.
