    Hello i have got an 08(03-08 8p) audi s3 with the xenon headlamps, but i want the LED DRLs aswell as xenons n i looked at a few aftermarket headlights but they seem to lose the xenons if used shame as liked these ones:

    PROJECTOR HEADLIGHTS LHD "starline" for Audi A3 8P (05/03-06/08), with DRL, in b | eBay

    but a was also wondering if anyone knows if the 09-12 (facelift?) lights fit into place? or if anyone knows where i can get a set they think im talking about?

    this is mine to clear confusion: caarr.jpg

    Welcome to the site.

    Don't bother fitting aftermarket, they wont work with existing levelling systems & tbh look **** mostly.

    To fit the latest led drl's you need the 09 onwards front end aswell.

    Its a bugger you're in Glasgow as we can do the whole front end conversion for you :)

    If you're coming down to London, can always drop it down further to us to do :)

    Yes it would be several thousand mate, its under cover bits not seen by naked eye, aswell as complete front end, plus headlights.

    We can supply/fit it all, just not the cheapest mod, but looks lovely when done :)
