    Led Headlights on pre facelift?

    just saw this on vortex, are these pre-facelift? Also anyone able to transcribe here especially re cost and complexities?

    cheers.

    just worked it out, if you click on all of the blue writing, its some pictures of an a3 fitted, of what seems to be the new 09 head lights, thats all i can tell as i don't understand the language!

    yes that is correct I should have made it clearer. Although they're not 09 headlights as these don't have the eyebrows but rather the (better looking imo) a4 style headlights.

    Its a good job we have a chinese fella in our department!

    He just translated for me they are aftermarket replicas designed specifically for 8P pre facelift cars. They have only just become available in china and they are plug and play.

    They should be available on ebay in the next few months for around 240 as thats how much the 8L versions are selling for on there that are already out.

    I prefer them that way round, looks like the A5/R8, much better that the genuine 09 A3 ones

    So would these headlights need the Auto lights switch and a new controle module for the LEDS do you rekon?

    do the chinese drive on the left hand side of the road? Not sure about them, would need to see them in the flesh & on. I'm guessing the car isnt an S3 looking at the bumper LOL

    Yeah its obvious they're replica's just from the led positions, they look ok but wont integrate with existing xenon setup properly if anyone's interested.

    But look well made though & they have a nice look to them.

    These headlights look well good!

    I wonder if fitting them would ruin the wiper motor, as it looks like lenses for xenon are fitted???

    And would these fit a 2004 A3 as it is not a SF grille???

    So many questions in my head!

    LHD lights point the beam to the right so if used in the UK they would blind oncoming drivers. And vice versa!

    In my excitement of seeing the wide arched car in the pic above I didn't realise that they are actually A4 headlights on it!
