    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...

    Good shout will pop over to Germany (on Ebay!)

    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. :)

    Its a site with general ads mate

    http://www.gumtree.com/edinburgh

    J
    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!

    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.
