    Probably, providing their are both the same type, ie xexon or halogen. If you have a look at your current headlight for the part number, I can check in the current parts catalogue to see if the part has changed.

    Looking at the parts catalogue it only seems to list one type of halogen headlight for the 8P up to the change from the 2006 to the 2007 model year.

    According to my copy of the Audi parts catalogue the number 8P0 941 004 L is the part number for the Right halogen headlight (Left-hand traffic) for both a 2004 and a 2006 A3 so there should be no problems.

    If you want to fit xenon headlights you have to do the job properly and using OEM xenon headlight units for your car to remain legal. It also includes fitting headlamp washers and auto-levelling. Any less would make your car illegal.

    This is a quote from the Department of Transport post in a previous thread...

    "It is not acceptable to convert a headlight approved for use with a halogen filament bulb to use a Xenon (HID) gas discharge bulb. The only acceptable way of converting is to replace the headlight for one approved for gas discharge bulbs. Such headlamps will be approved to UNECE Regulation 98 and 'E' marked. If headlamps approved to UNECE Regulation 98 are retro-fitted, they must be self-levelling (as part of the headlamp system) or via self-levelling suspension and headlamp washers must be installed. Under the Road Traffic Act 1988, it is an offence to fit or use parts which are not legal"
