    Now I think he has put the 8p3 bits into the housing of the 8p1 lights.

    Looks a bit odd to me. Fair play for making it work though.

    Definintely doesn't look right in the twin grill car, might look passable in a big single grill car though. But the headlights on the new A3 are perhaps one of the least appealing parts of the car, the DRLs, even when off, dominate the headlight. The A4/5 design is much nicer.

    Have to agree, looks a bit too busy on the front of an 8P1. Would look good on an 8P2 S Line though, I reckon.

    These Polish lads certainly know a thing or two.

    just to point out the bottom of the beam appears to be obstructed by the headlight, wonder how it would fare come mot time

    SSSSHHHH!!!! Keep it on the down low guys, otherwise - in addition to the sat navs - they'll start ripping out your 8P3 headlights and shipping them over to the other side of The Wall...:crying:

    Anybody ever managed to retrofit these to an 8P2 s3... without obviously doing the full facelift?

    Looking for the 8P3 oem look....
