    I'm guessing you have a pre-facelift A3?

    If so, they will fit with a little modification.

    Remove your headlamp and indicator.
    Get a hacksaw and cut away some of the metal which sat behind the indicator, leaving about 1cm (I think).
    Put a dab of paint on the bare metal that you have just cut.
    Fit new light.

    Do a search for fitting facelift lights, someone a while ago (maybe a year ago) posted detailed instruction on how to do this along with pictures.

    Ah... hang fire... is that new syle A3 (2002 onwards) lights or old style (up to 2001-2002) facelift lights?

    Even if you buy facelift headlight from the likes of VAG PARTS, cutting is still required.
