    I have thought but tbh I'm not keen on the look of protectors. But ive not seen any on an A3, only other makes and its always put me off them. I may go down the route of using Laminx one day.

    I would hate to think about the cost of repacing the new LED adaptives, will be ordering mine in the morning as I just tried to fit my prefacelift covers but are now a different fit..

    Yea, HID's with those headlights are awesome! Look around for aftermarket stuff, it may end up being cheaper than an OEM set. My advice is to get something between 4800K-6000K. Thats the best range, because you get the most lumens out of that. It's the most usefull. You get a bit more color as you move closer to 6000K, but after that the amount of light you get drops off and it just adds more color. If youre going for more show rather than functionality, go with 8K+

    bixenon means xenon for full and dipped beam mate, sarah already has xenonx, though some aftermarket xenon bulbs wouldnt do it any harm purple light sexy!

    Hoorrah for the confederacy, the splitters of, you know we were right my dear, as Phil says paint it black as our car colours are the same, trust me gloss black is the key here, the stock silvery colour looks pants imho on our colour cars, especially with a black optiks, too many contrasts.

    they would point into the eyes of oncomming traffic due to the side of the road we drive on, rather than the kerb
