    They all just look wrong, I think it is a case of if you want them that much, do a Phil, or get a new car :)

    I think the problem with those style of lights is that they look exactly like what they are. Cheap copys.

    I can never understand why when companies make replicas etc, they don't look anything like the real ones. Surely it aint that hard!!

    haha i like it,as for aftermarket, it always looks good but the build quality is always rubbish, this is before you take the dullness of the drls into account

    Don't like them at all personally. Regardless of the actual quality of them, they make you look like an A5/R8 wannabe too much. It's akin to all the chavs you see in knackered old 3-series Beemers with aftermarket "angel eyes" - somewhere the A3 can do without going tbh.

    Just my personal opinion mind :)

    Hey man I actually have those same ones on my white A3 and even got from the same website. The amount of work is pretty much taking the bumper off and removing the headlights which is easy, the only tricky part is wiring the LEDs to the regular lights. They are NOT plug and play like they appear to be. I have some pics of mine on my profile page, if you have any questions let me know

    They arent the same, if you have a look in the ebay link they have indicator in the middle housing. Yours have the indicator on the outside in the original OEM position.
