    B5 A4 Headlight question

    Hello,

    This has probably been asked a number of times before but - Will facelift healights (2000+) fit in a pre-facelift car? I have a '99 B5 A4 with two knackered headlights and thought I'd upgrade if possible while swapping them.

    If they do - is it fairly straight forward?

    Any help will be appreciated!
    Thanks.

    You need the plugs for the back of the headlamps and remove somemetal from around the old indicator position on the wing front. Makes ahuge difference to the car though

    Great, thanks for that - it does make a difference. Seems to make the wheels look bigger and suspension lower too!

    Do the headlight level adjusters still work? Think I'll go for it, yours looks good.

    Cheers!

    You'll also lose your integrated foglights, if that's a big deal...

    It's been on my "to do" list since the dawn of time.
