    Clear Headlight Indicator Conversion

    Hi, I have been loaned a 57 plate a4 cab at the moment, mine is a 06, is it possible to retro fit the clear headlight indicator lenses into my 06 like those on the later cars or are they a sealed unit?? Thanks, Andrew

    If you check out post number 63 on the following thread, it appears it is possible - however you will have to take your headlight apart........

    Might be worth dropping the guy a line.


    I'm lucky in that my A4 came with crystal optics, something I insisted on when looking around, but I've since turned them into daytime running lights (see avatar)

    There's is another way .... some guys on Audiworld have posted how to convert the orange headlights into white ones. You remove them from the car, stick them in the oven at home and heat them up until the glue holding the front and back together softens, then prise them apart and pull off the bit of orange plastic. Then you stick them back together again and put them back on your car.

    I'm not joking....
