Thanks for clearing that up, think I'll go for it for sure :icon_thumright:
finally rebuilt my site and got pics back up.
Take a look here:
Rich, I'm currently building a B5 RS4 sedan, engine, tranny and all OEM bodywork, car's in the botyshop right now. (See Project B5 RS4 Sedan in B5 section).
I'm installing genuine RS4 HID projector headlamps. I'm specifically interested in a HID kit for the main beam, I'm aware my ability to "flash" oncoming traffic will be reduced, due to Xenon slower reaction, but I'm addressing this with an additional halogen unit in each headlamp.
What 6000k kit would you recommend from your range, and how much? Thanks.
Hey, Rich! haven't heard from you regarding the kit mentioned above??
Lol, Rich, no worries. Will sort out HID kit elsewhere, no shaking.
i think you should just send him a pm
I did, 3 days ago, but with no response, I've had to re-post on here. No way of telling if he's received the PM, but I'd have thought he'd check a thread he's got an interest in...

check his website and see if there is any contact number there.
But he always replies to my pm
I have recently ordered a set of Facelift headlights for my A3 from german ebay. when they arrived i realised that there is no way of adjusting the beam for driving in this country, and therefore will not pass an MOT if I fit them. I was wondering out of the people here who have ordered lights from germany, how many are capable of being adjusted for RHD?
jus had my facelifts put in, and they look the nuttsssssss!
I did it too! makes the car look so much better!
I also had to cut some metal and plastic off where the wing attatches to the bumper guide to get them to fit, but was worth it in the end....
Also....for all you people having trouble with your headlights shaking or moving, id recommend this kit from ebay germany, you get a bracket that mounts underneath your headlight, all bolts to fit it, and a connector, wiring set and heatshrinks to complete the conversion, its all there. The brackets are really easy to fit aswell and my headlights are rock solid.
Im really happy with the mod, makes the front end look so much better.
do you have a pic of the kit from Germany?
and where exactly does it fit?
I dont have any pics of the kit unfortunetely, but you get more than enough things to do the full conversion (wires, connectors, bolts etc...) it fits in underneath the headlight, one bolt goes throught the hole at the bottom of the headlight and the other side of the bracket goes onto the whole where the old headlight fixes in underneath. You do have to drill one of the holes in the bracket yourself, which is easy enough.
hi guys i just wanted to know about the HID kits, Im looking at getting facelifted a3, but want to put a 6k HID kit on it, is it easy, and pass the mot? or is it more hassle than its worth?
very easy to fit.
just fitted one to mine. 6k from vision perfomance. £65 delivered
will past MOT no problem for the facelift ones since they are projector type.
You can get it properly aligned at your MOT center.
do you have any pics of your car?
will try and get some
will pass MOT and not past*
What bulb fitting are your HID's? I ordered the H7 kit after looking on a website where you choose your car and it tells you which fitting it is (because i was too lazy to look at the light!) and when i went to fit it, it turns out to be a H1 bulb for dipped beam! Doh! So ive got a H7 Bosch HID kit lying around having to order a H1 version haha!
I have the H1 HID....most sellers think they are H7...lol...don't know why.
I got mine from visionperformance at £65 delivered.
can any one tell me how to ask a question i have a 210 s3 and wanted to know the best way to get more power is it via chipping also i have noticed on e bay 20% more bhp via a part that goes in your air box for abu ot a fiver is this ****
I have got my RHD facelift lights finaly. I also have the wiring kit necessary to do the conversion. I was just wondering if the headlight adjuster moters for the original lights will fit to the new facelift lights? The lights are made by depo, i dont know if that makes any difference?
Fitted my facelift lights yesturday and just finished up the wiring today. I am very pleased with the results, makes the front of the car look so much better! next job...facelift rear lights, as soon as funds permit
Been through the thread but can't find a link to the german ebay seller. Is this where people are going to get their lights still?
The link is below however they convert to about £500 thats not including P&P....but this might be because they are Xenon and not Halogen.
go to your local breakers, or ebay.
They come up very often on ebay..where I got mine
be careful ordering lights from Germany! Dont want to end up with LHD lights like i did although some are capable of being swiched over to RHD, not all are to make sure you check...
there was a german seller on ebay (from early in the thread) who sold really cheap lights. I bought my rears from him. Not sure if he's still around though.
excellent, just what i needed to know
I'm finally going to get round to doing this in the next couple of weeks.
Just wondering whether the bracket referred to in Post 91 was required as no one else has commented on the lights being wobbly afterwards.
Found another link for the set on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Audi-A3-S3-Fa...4584336QQcmdZViewItem?_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116
What sort of connecters are included too? Thanks
Nice find! Im after a set myself, but have to find myself an angle grinder first lol
Good luck on the upgrade and let us know how it goes!
I don't have the bracket and up to now working fine. BUT there is a slight vibration/movement on very bumpy roads.
I think a small DIY bracket will fix the problem.
The connetcors are readily available at your local dealer
#You say about the twist fit bit..
Basically, I've got a Pre facelift and some Facelift Xenones, But i don't have the old units due to angels being fitted...
If i get the above listed part numbers, I'll still need the end of the plug that plugs into the car loom itself if that makes sense...
Do you have a part number for this?
I can't get one because i don't have the existing lights
Sooo want to get these fitted though!
hey guys. just got a quick question. basicly i have a 1999 pre face lift A3 turbo and having read this thread im thinking of doing a headlight conversion.
if i fit some Audi A3 S3 8L Xenons Facelift 99-03
would i be right in saying id need to cut out a small part of the wing to fit them like hte pics show and would i need this too?
what about the headlight level adjusters. would they still adjust ok?
Still after a set of facelift headlights for my pre facelift A3.
Anyone have some? Please PM me... money is waiting
Check for break a3 on ebay. guy offered me the front facelifts and rear facelift for £110....
Damn you got luck then
The only ones I can find are stupid angel light ones or the R8 ones
not genuine one though, but they do look very good ones
Im now selling mine.
From an S3, with Xenons and Ballasts etc.
New set of bulbs, and I've also made the looms already to plug straight in and tested them.
They're on ebay here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250314975447 if any of you are interested, they seem pretty sought after - First come first serve, just offer me.
Car might have to go and so i don't need them any more.
are all S3 ones Xenon? Im looking to upgrade my lights on a 1997 1.8 SE but not sure which are straight fit as I dont want to start hacking at my wings like Ive read on afew post now.
Any advice please?
