    the facelift lights can fit the non-faclift models but you need to cut a little bit of the wing im told

    yeah the a5 headlight probably would fit .............. if you got the time money and skill to fit them.

    the headlights are probaly so different it probaly wouldnt be worth the time or money and then may not even look right

    B6 A4 lights will not fit a B5. Facelift B5 one piece ones will fit with a small mod to the wing and wiring

    and the projectors in pretty much all aftermarket lamps are *****

    even the insurance approved Depo lamps are rubbish.

    Take my advice, and stay away from the "Essex Racing" headlamps!

    Apart from the terrible beam pattern - so much light scatter, they have no facility for transferring the levelling motors from your OEM units.

    A massive downgrade, in my book. I'd go OEM single-piece units, of just freshen up the existing glass items with new ones.

    The In-Pro projector headlights I had in my old A4 where pretty good... better even than the xenons in my S3
