    Yea I saw one audi in my local area Heston close to Heathrow . It had on the drl s type head . There are 2 types on eBay , one like a l shape style which is around £250 and another which I rather and like more . Because it look like the replica of the new shape headlight . But they are pricey ,£370 . if I can get these from
    the uk will be better for a bit less .. Send pics of ur lights mate let me have a look ..

    I like those, saw them on ebay a while back but was worried about buying something so expnsive, were they easy to fit mitch?

    Do the DRLS turn on when you turn the side lights on or are they always on?

    looks good quality wise, but my only gripe is the light is very yellow, not white/blue like the oem ones, i wonder if its possible to replace the installed leds ?

    I have the DRL's on my A4 too. I got them from turborevs in east ham.. They sell on ebay under the same name. They are a halogen headlight but I fitted a xenon conversion making them bi xenon as a motor adjusts the beam for high beam... In comparison to standard headlights, the light output is far better. They fit the car well for aftermarket too. I like the ones I have as they look a littlemore oem with them having the indicators on the inner edge of the light like the B8 does.

    If I ever get round to it I think I'll go with buying a set of headlights, ship them over to Phil in the states and get him to fit LEDs as they have gone down a storm on the US forums.

    I've been in two minds about these but seeing this pic helps... they look pretty good. I think I still prefer the OEM bi-xenons though

    Bumper does have to come off which is a bit of a faff and you'll probably shred the skin on the back of your hands.

    BUT DON'T FIDDLE WITH THE BUMPER ADJUSTMENT SCREWS! You'll have a nightmare getting the bumper height right if you do.

    they are just plug and play lights real easy to change and yea like a said there are a white/blue LED just for some reason the pic doesnt show up like tht, but if you are worried about fitting them a garage will do it for £20 or so......

    Did the A3 & A4 without removing the bumper. Hard work but not as hard as pissing around with the bumper

    Hey there, thinking of getting an A4 cab 2006. And wanted to black the grill and change the light if i opt for the A4 cab. Do the (2xcite) lights that fit the A4 also fit the A4 cab? or do they need to be cabriolet specific? The R8 style give the car a fresher look.

    You just undo the bolts under the engine and the ones that level the bumper, undo all the light bolts thenbasically pull the bumper like fuckin billyo and move the lights around until they come out and reverse to fit. Make sure the connectors are on before fitting as they are a Twat to fit otherwise.

    Hey guys sorry to reply to an old thread, I was just wondering Blackie - how did you decide if you should go with the black headlights or chrome ones?? It looks like you have the black ones on... I'm looking to get the same but on my mauritius blue A3 - pre facelift.. I'm just not soo sure that it'll look good.. Do you think I should stick to the chrome?
