    Here is a guide to Changing Bi-Xenon headlights for European Driving on a A3 (8P) using VAG-COM. These instructions have now had a second section added on how to change the Adaptive Xenon headlights as well. These use a different Channel to the normal Bi-Xenon headlights.

    Change Bi-Xenons for European Driving


    I've just looked in Elsawin and it looks like a 2005 8P with Xenons should have a lever in the headlights to change them for continental use. Here is a link to the Elaswin page which may help:

    change xenons for continental use

    If your particular headlights do not have this lever then it may well be a visit to the dealer to have them changed on their diagnostic kit.

    £77.36 each inc VAT (UK)

    Sportback
    8P4 945 095 E (left outer tail light)
    8P4 945 096 E (right outer tail light)
    8P4 945 093 D (left inner tail light)
    8P4 945 094 D (right inner tail light)
    No prices for the SB lights as yet.

    There is no difference in the part numbers for LHT and RHT SB rear lights.

    Lights include the glass, bulb holder and all bulbs.
    3dr lights are a straight swap. Awaiting confirmation of additional connectors required for SB inner lights.

    Ok here goes, after months of deciding I took the plunge and went for the conversion. Originally I had the split grill on my A3 - at the time of buying it was at the top end of my budget so was the best I could get. Leather interior was on the priority. My first purchase was the ABT front conversion panel, then I fitted an ABT lower spolier - I loved the look of this but still wanted the single grill so took the plunge.

    Basically I went from this

    to this

    Conversion pre-facelift double grill bumper(2003-2005)to facelift S-line bumper

    Please can you make any comments on the above thread and keep this thread tidy.
