    Hi guys I'm new to the forum, was just a quick question, I have upgraded my 2003 Audi A3 to 2008 s line bumper and S3 grille, the fog light grills are from 2008 also, I bought some fog lights which are circular for 2008 but take H11 bulbs, I have asked around and everyone says my car should take H7, problem I have the old fog lights won't fit. The h11 bulbs dnt fit into my cable as one side on the cable from the car is flat and both sides it's connects into on H11 bulbs are circular, is ther any way I can get this to fit? Ur help would be appreciated thanks.

    if im on the right path here: yes your 2003 A3 should take h7 like these: [​IMG] the 2008 ones you have are like these:..........i think you need to find a 2008 car and cut the fog lamp wiring and solder the wiring on to your car,thats what i would do personally.......best option if you ask me.

    Thanks for ur help, I'll give that a try, I'll find one from the breakers somewhere. Was hoping there would be some sort of adapter make it easier lol.
    Cheers

    P.S am rite in thinking as I've got an S3 bumper just needs spraying, the fog light grilles for this would be same fit for 2008 fog lights? I.e. The circular ones not flat top? I haven't got the fig grilles yet?
    Thanks

    S-line and S3 share the same fog lights, though the grills are different.
    the connector for the S-line h11 bulb is different from the connector of the standard H7, so you would need to get hold of a fog connector from an s-line model
