    You have to cut a bit on the inside of the wing but other than that they fit.

    If you have an s3 with xenons as standard and get a pair of s3 facelift lights with xenons as standard then it will plug straight. If you have an a3 and want to fit hids in them then get a kit designed for your car and it should plug straight in.
