    I reckon NHN could fit a Mouse's arse on an elephant!

    What I am curious to know is are those A4 DRL a direct fit? If they are mate, them & a private plate could really extend the time I keep my car! Would look different than all the other facelift models without losing the OEM look and feel.

    The bumper on the gold A3 has been modified quite a bit by the looks of it, the gap between the headlights and grille is much bigger than on both pre and post facelift A3's. I reckon a huge amount of work has gone into it to be honest. Its like anything though, if you have the skills and/or money you can do what you like!

    Seems such a shame to do such well executed OEM mods, some one off arch work that looks great and then ruin it all by painting it in nappy poo yellow and coating all the grilles in it too, looks pants.

    Lol... magners, I used to be on that alot when at uni... ahhh magners wish I could remember what I was doing

    Lee well spotted mate, I think it maybe a Hoefele (sp??) bumper I remember that the RS4 grill fitted their S3 bumper, and it also had a bigger than usual gao between bonnet.

    Another way?

    I'd rather wait for the black ones though. Haven't see them anywhere yet...

    Why is it these guys just don't copy the OEM ones as closely as possible or at least have the DRL LED's the same way as they are on the face lift? I am guessing it's not a infringement issue, as there are tons of replica wheels out there... Always baffles me this. I mean just up the quality and match to OEM then you can get 300 non xenon & 500 with xenons for those all day long surely?!

    I'm not sure, but there are many posts about aftermarket xenons blowing wiper motors... Maybe this has since been resolved as most problems were from a while back.

    Well if the light units contain the ballasts then hopefully i'd just need the Xenon light module and the DRL switch and wiring.

    Time will tell

    you will need to remove the fron bumper to fit the lights. Depending on the connector it could be plug n play, I'm guessing they will have made it the same as OEM. After that its up to you if you want to keep car road legal by fitting washers & sensors for autoleveling.

    I know that the light pattern will be OK but that seller doens't send to Romania, unfortunately for me i will have to wait for this item to be sold by different sellers.
