    Hey guys,

    So frustrating when you can't find the parts you need. Have been searching Ebay, and scrappies for 2 weeks for a facelift passenger side headlight unit. Found 2 but in appalling condition - worse than mine with rust inside the lense.

    Any other places I could try does anyone know? Seen a set and asked the seller if they'd split on Ebay but no reply after 2 days :(

    There's so many new s3 8P parts available it's crazy - obviously the older stuff is harder to source...

    Yeah it's pre-facelift which is a shame as I need a face light one but thanks anyway that could of been a result. :)

    ust type Audi and your location and it should come up with Audi, it will range from cars to some parts its a bit of a hit or miss but it can be good for wheels and tyres!

    Gumtree is good. Some right gems can be found there as not many people know about it. Got my 4ft fishtank for free on there :p

    You could always try TPS, they are pretty good. As said above Ebay Germany is ace, got loads from there.

    If it was cheap you could maybe polish out a few of the scratches and make do until you found a mint one then sell that one on

    True I'll keep an eye on it - anyone know if the lenses can be easily swapped as my original lens is in good condition.
