    Welcome Jax

    Don't know about your stonechip issue as i'm the other end of the country, but with regards to the replica R8 headlights, i take it you mean that you want light with the DRL's (daytime running lights) with the LED's?

    For your year of car, there aren't any direct replacments, the newer 09 onwards facelift A3's have the DRL LED's in them, but they are a slightly different shape and wont fit directly to your car without some modifications

    TBH, i'm not a fan of the fairy lights unless it's on an S5 or an R8

    Do you have xenons or bi-xenons Jax? Bi-Xenons have the built in DRLs and the bulbs for them can be changed to make them look whiter.

    Jax, might be worth throwing a couple of pictures up of the car in its current state along with the model and trim level so that people can suggest mods

    I second the alloy suggestion if it hasnt already got a nice set, another popular one (particularly on Ibis cars) is the black trim grill surround. Dependant on the body type you may want to update the rear lights to the new sportback LED type or the updated 3 door units which look much better.

    I had actually thought about about the black grill, where would i get one?

    Will get some pics up. Thanks for your help v. much appreciated.

    Also any ideas where to get rear lights from, and would it need any alterations to have them fitted? Car is an 07/07 s line 3dr.

    Nice car! I think a black grill surround would make it look great (al la Black Edition) but this is my own personal view. Tints would be a nice upgrade as the Ibis 3 doors really suit it.

    heres a picture of a A3 8P3 with tints and the new style tail lights
