    Hi all, Im pretty new here so please, if this has come up before - dont nag me. Just think Dae Jaaa Vooo

    Anyway,

    I've got a 1.8t 1999 but want to fit the facelift headlights but the (Wait for it) Angel eye ones see http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Audi-A3-8L-Angel-Eyes-Headlights-brand-FK_W0QQitemZ190064130865QQihZ009QQcategoryZ23009QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item190064130865

    I understand its not just a straight swap. Is there a forum out there that gives details on how to fit these bad boys? i.e. pics etc?
    From what I hear, its best to take the bumper off to do this.

    One more thing. Is the wiring the same? Do I need to cut and solder? if so has anyone came up with a diagram/solution or is there a wiring harness that can be bought?

    Ive got the angel eyes on my A3.

    To be honest i wouldnt bother, they let water in!

    My left headlight has loads of condensation in it, and they only look good when the car is all polished up and shiny!

    Dont go for the ULTRA or Cheap ebay ones.
