    hey all.

    i did post this via the mobile app, but it didnt seem to appear, so ill try again on a pc.

    i have a v reg s4, with one piece headlights.

    they are xenons and the mouting areas on the nearside light have broken and the light is loose.

    basically i need to know if i can just get another light (xenon or not) and swap over the black plastic on the back of the lights that has the mounting bits on it?

    or do i need to find an exact copy and just swap them completely over?

    obviously it would be cheaper to just get a standard/non xenon headlight and butcher it...


    thanks

    if its just the top two tabs, you can buy a repair kit from audi.

    But yes, if you wanted to you could swap the casings with a set of normal halogen lamps, however they're a bit of a pig to dismantle!

    About £20 I think. Bit dear for a couple of bits of plastic...
