    A5/S5 headlights

    Hi there any of you know if its possible to fit the whole head lamp from an A5/S5 to an 8p A3. I want xenons plus the audi running lights. Reasonj i ask for A5 version as i like the lights at the bottom rather then at the top on the new A3 models.

    Everything is possible. . . . . . This however I would class as not practical! You would need extensive work to the front end to make them fit.

    They look stunning on the A5/S5, not sure about the top corner ones on the facelift S3.
    I hope someone finds a way of doing it

    They won't fit directly no, they're a different shape.

    You be better off getting some A3 xenons and then trying to fit the LED DRLs from a set of A5 halogens with LEDs. They cost 170 a side.

    It all depends on how much you want it and how much cash you are willing to spend.
