    You can send them here and someone from here forward them on to you?

    Still they don't ship to Romania, what a shame :(. Did anyone buy this head lights from that seller, and if so how are they. I'm refering only to the build quality of the product.

    Thank you

    I want a set :) 100% the black ones! Cant wait till there RHD probably be a few months down the line.
    We could get a list together of who would interested and some one could get in touch will the seller see if he or she can give us any idea of when they will be RHD as we have this many people interested? Just a thought mind.

    Mate if you want them that bad. You could have them shipped to my address and i can have them shipped them to Romania? If that help you out at all. Have you asked the seller if you pay little extra will he be willing just this one off to post them to you?

    mmm, they dont look too bad on. So you buy the bare headlight & add your own HID or halogen? I wonder if its an aftermarket HID kit or if only the Audi one fits.

    As my good lady speaks German I asked her to email the seller and ask a few questions. Here's the transcript of that conversation:

    Hello guys, i have some news that i would like to share them with you. I've conatcted the dectane importer for Romania and i've placed an order of one pair of these led headlights, the price was 260euros including shipping and vat. I will recieve the lamps next friday and i will keep you posted with some pics on how do they look on my car.
    Keep your fingers crossed because i hope that they will fit just fine :D

    Thanks for doing that Leon. Not too sure about the last reply they sent your partner lol. Looks like it gonna be a long wait. I'm not too sure on them...They look good when the ligths on but not too sure when there off. I'd still pay a pair to see what they look like for myself on the car.
    And decide then.

    Ashley


    Haha may have to get a big list to make them do it RHD! lol

    Lol Khufu what we gonna do with them ha!


    Glad to hear your able to get a pair now. Looking forward to the photo's :)
    Bet you cant wait now!

    They look ok in the pics but the LED's are a bit chav blue on the last one. I think when you actually look at one of these units in the flesh you will be disappointed, they will look like any other cheap aftermarket headlight, e.g. like the cheap angel eyes that are all over ebay.

    To convert to RHD all you would need to do is flip the cutoff shield inside the projector unit from this:

    ____/""""""""

    to this:

    """"""\_____

    I'd imagine you have to do that for both headlights?

    Okay people im bumping this thread a little for some answers after reading through it ...

    The link for the black lights off ebay (german) If I ordered those would they not fit a 8P Audi A3? im confused as to what (RHD) means??? Would they not fit in place of the exsisting light or is it electrical??

    Some answers would be great. As im aiming to get an A3 TDi S-line very soon and really love DRL's and want them! :D :D

    Yes they will be plug and play on all A3's without Xenons.

    RHD means Right Hand Drive. These units from germany are for LHD so if you use them in the UK the beam will shine into the other lane and blind other road users

    Really appreciate the explanation :) Im sure that it would be easy for someone to modify the lights and rectify this issue? They look so nice!

    No-one could ever call them chavvy or anything of that nature (as I would if someone had them on a Ford Focus lol) but on an actual new Audi! Yes please

    These new LED Lights that everybody wants including me ....has got me thinking. I don't think these are as good as everybody is making them out to be. First of all these lights are no where near as bright as the OEM one's from audi. But I have found somebody that has done one which looks like :drool: Please check out the night time video and daytime...and tell me what you think. I'm going to have to see if I can get this done my self ...because the one's that everybody going on about on this form is now not the one!!!

    you can get the latest and brightest LEDs here: http://www.dealextreme.com/products.dx/category.917~page.1

    If what you mean is to replace the actual LEDs in the headlight for brighter ones...

    If you're talking about those strips of LEDs that you can glue onto your headlights, you can find tons of those on eBay
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2x-48cm-Xenon-White-Audi-R8-S6-Style-DRL-Fog-LED-Light_W0QQitemZ110401719897QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item19b4748e59&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12|66%3A2|39%3A1|72%3A1683|240%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50

    that's obviously the easy way to get DRLs. hardly gonna look OEM though
