    Hi

    Just bought a 98 A4 1.8T Sport. Have seen some of the Angel eyes on Venom, but not too keen on them.

    Wanted to achieve the facelifted look, I'm guessing that you can't just replace the headlights with the later model spec ones?

    What others can you get and could you post some pics up please

    Thanks

    You can put facelift model b5 lights on, just requires some modding to the arches.

    Excuse the scuff mark, these black angel eye projectors, made by solar. They are euro marked, do point to the left and are plug and play. You will only need to wire the angels up as normal sidelights come rigged as standard, they are about £150 on e bay and can get them in chrome etc. Best i have had.

    Also had these which i bought for £219 a few months ago and hated them! The angel eye bulbs (consists of 4) blow constantly and look very tacky on a dark coloured car.

    Yea they are very easy to fit, i'm 19 with no experience with much modding, except the chrome angels i had before. These were easier, so is the wiring!

    These are made by solar, any other 'look a likes' i can't vouch for. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    The angel eyes do stay on with full beam, this was when i first got them and had only just fitted them. So the angels weren't wired up.

    2 More pics for you.

    The question is, does my car count as garaged?
    It goes out into our lane. Its nice coz the locals cant see the cars, but it doesnt keep you dry when workin on the car!

    The mk1 is a 1.1, absolute minter! My other flat mates car...
    he paid nigh on 2k for it tho! Sellin his green GTi at the mo, cheap ins and fuel costs!

    Seat belts are the best bit... theres no buckles, theres a bar that goes thru the belts and locks in place, old skool!
