    Irecently bought an A3 2.0TDI that came with the S3 kit. There were no fog lights fitted although there was one in the boot which I was told just needed fitting and I just needed to order another one. Anyway popped the bumper off today and the fog light that came with the car wont fit. Below is a photo of the fog light that I have got, I believe it is the wrong one? Could someone point me in the correct direction for which fog lights I need?

    Thanks,
    Andy

    Stuck already, found 2 different types of 8P fog lights, some are a circular fog light and some have a flat bottom. Can anyone shed some light?

    This is what my front end looks like

    You need H11 fogs for S3 and S-Line bumpers

    That looks like an 8P sport foglight? The flat bit at the top. But as mentioned you need the S-Line or S3 ones which are slightly different, also you may need the plugs.

    Sport has the flat edge & the Sline/S3 has the round type, the Sport ones have a different connector/wiring to the sline/s3 ones, so if yours was a sport before, it needs rewiring to suit.

    If yours is the flat edge early s-lines, then that looks fine.
