    Hi everyone first post so bare with me! Currently own a 54 plate 1.6 A3, absolutely love it (pictures will be up soon!!) However I LOVE the look of the newer inbuilt LEDs in the 2011-2013 model so I done abit of research and came across a minefield of possibilities however most of these are cheap conversion kits on eBay and I don't want a cheap look. What's the best way to install LEDs that look as if they were standard and not some cheap ones on the net? Anyone done this before? Thanks guys :)

    I should specify I'm talking about the side lights. For example 180097d1274357668-audi-bmw-mercedes-led-side-lights-audi-a3-copy.jpg

    Its going to be either a very cheap route or its going to be a very expensive route. Expensive route is buy the full facelift front end and then fit and then paint. Will cost a lot. Price will end up being in the £1000s

    Cheap route is buy the chavvy headlights thats out there. Price will be between £150 to £300 depending on brand and design.

    Me personally would go the expensive route however I would gradually buy the parts one at a time so therefore more cheaper compared to buying everything together. There is the off chance that complete front end would come up for peanuts.

    All upto you mate! :p

    Depends on the headlights fitted now & of course your end goal/budget.

    get some leds from t8ups and call it a day. it'll be way too expensive to get the full front end, and its not gonna make a diff to ur resale value

    Yeah my budget is nowhere near enough to start replacing the front end :( I think it will have to be buying the LEDs and just fitting them, anyone got any good recommendation's?

    I have the facelift model and it came with halogens as standard as mine and even when I've been upgrading to the new drls it's not been cheap:thumbdown:
