    I'm trying to replace the standard headlights on my 2000 A3 for a new set of angel eyes. Removed the top screws and disconnected all wiring but can't see how to remove the whole unit, does anyone know if the bumper needs to come off like on the facelift model or can this be done with bumper in place?

    Cheers

    You can take the lights out without taking the bumper off.. I did.. Take off the indicator Aswell and make sure you disconnect everything and just be careful when you wiggle it out.. It is easier with the bumper off though.
