    Hi all just some pics of my new lights. I wanted to make the front a bit more aggressive so I went with the black halo lights and just got a new set of the facelift lights on the back. hope you like

    Where can you get the facelift rears from and are they a direct fit?

    They look excellent.

    Yep, the rears are a direct fit, you can even use the old bulb holders as I did in mine.

    Check ebay for some, theres always a few sets on there and they really do spruce the back end up a lot over the old ones.

    As for the front ones that are shown up there, I quite like those but I just dont think I want halo's as I associate them with chavved up BMW's etc.

    I'm desperate to facelift the front end on mine as the prefacelift lights look ****.

    Yeah thats what I'm thinking, turned off they look alright but switched on..... oh dear!.

    If someone made a set of facelift lights that didnt involve body work, wiring mods and halo's I'd snap their hand off!.

    Sorry got to agree. Tha back looks great but the fronts don't but hey it's only an opinion. I think they'd look good on my black S3 but again, that's only when they are turned off. personally I don't like angel eye look unless its on beemers.

    Mark / Tom,
    Is there still a hole in these for fitting of a 501 sidelight bulb? or are the halos the sidelight?
