    Been really trying to tidy my car up, then last night on the dual carriageway the dumbest bird ever decides to fly in front of me.

    Smashed my passenger light and wrecked my grill! :banghead::banghead::banghead:

    My question is due to the S3 having xenons do i need a different headlamp cover or can one from say a 1.8T do?

    cheers

    Back in the day a m8 hit one after he fitted his new slitter. Literally cut one in half. Was amusing at the time.

    No you should be able to use the same headlight lense for the front if its a facelift S3, notably the plastic clear part, use a heatgun or even stick in the oven to heat the sealant up & then you can pull apart, swap fronts & then heat again & maybe some added sealant & reseal.

    I hit a badger once in my old Mk1 Fiesta, and that took out the front valence and totalled the radiator.

    The the following Xmas in my Mk2 Fiesta hit (& killed!!) 2 foxes in 3 days!!

    Touch wood, so far only hit a rabbit in the S3. Just a bit of blood to clear off the rear wheel arch...

    Cheers,

    You cant actually do that, if i hit and go back and pick it up its classed as poaching, but if someone in front of me kills it and i stop then i can legally pick it up as road kill. Another quirk in our strange country
