    hi there, thinking about getting facelift headlights for my silver a3 1.8t.
    but also considering black/tinted ones (ebay job), not necessarily angel eyes, but they all seem to be so.
    anyone got any pics of black lights on a silver a3?

    jason, can you post a bigger pic of your motor? i rekon black will look meaner, esp with potential gun metal alloys.

    I rather like the facelift lights, heres the pic of the rears fitted, 5min job provided you dont drop the adapter your using to get the nuts off, in the wing. like a muppet. I havent got round to the fronts yet, but have them ready to go.
