    Hi guys/girls,

    I'm new on here, so hi to all:)

    I need a little advice on changing the headlights on my Audi S3 2001 model. I've had a good look around the site but can't really find an answer, I'm sure someone will find it though lol...

    I would like to fit a set of these;
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AUDI-A3-1996-...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item5193303a6b

    I believe my car is a pre-face lift model, though I am not 100% on that. It has Xeons atm so am unsure if the above lights would be a direct swap...

    Thanks in advance.

    yours is a facelift i think. in which case these would bolt straight on. you would be able to sell your old ones for twice the price you buy your angel eyes too!

    Sorry I should of said it's on a Y plate not 01/51... Not sure if that tells the difference between the 2 models..

    yes your head lights are 1 piece then... i.e facelift. so those angel eyes will fit in the hole no problem. pre-facelift you need to grind part of the wing out like i had too!

    Cool stuff.. so my car is a facelift the lol... Thanks for all your help.. I have just one more question :) hehe My friend showed me ages ago a company that makes the standard headlights but with the inside black, you wouldn't happen to know where I could find them, would you? Cause that's what I like the look of and I'm also painting the grill surround black..

    Thanks again.
