    Hi Audi petrolheads,
    Sorry if this has been raised before but couldn't find an answer and was hoping you can help. I'm new to the forum and would like some advice!

    My car's an early 2000 and has the two piece headlights. Are the facelift one-piece headlights a straight swap for mine? I understand the front wings are different (somehow?) but the lights look the same shape so could be a straight swap but something tells me it won't be that easy - someone put me outta my misery!!

    I think i can pick some up on eBay but don't wanna shell out if they won't fit!
    Cheers
    Dom

    Nope, you need to modify the loom and cut the inner wing to get them to fit.

    If your prefacelift car has got xenon lights as standard then is square connector, otherwise is O round connector.
