    will any facelift headlights fit (with the mods in RichA3Turbo's) or do I need only 2001-2003?

    or simpler, will any light after 2001 fit? wthere it is 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006

    Thanks...

    Somebody please confirm

    2001-2003 - but unless you currently have xenons you dont want S3 ones.

    If you buy the plugs and leads as per the other thread the wiring is quite easy - its just a case of marking where each colour goes to before you cut the wires from the old lights to make your new loom.

    Its quite self explanitory once u have it infront of u

    Don't think they will fit - 8P part number means it is the new A3 (i.e. 2004 onwards). You are looking for an 8L part number.
