    Hi guys recently got my Audi A4 Cabriolet 1.8t
    S-Line 55 Plate
    The previous owner had HIDs installed but one of my headlights won’t work so I took it to the nearest auto electrician and he took a look and said the wiring is all messed up etc, he said the lift was broken and there is no motor? he suggested me to get another set of standard lights to replace as these are broken.

    Now looking on eBay they all look extremely pricey...as they are xenon/angel eyes etc but... can I just replace with normal headlights from a standard A4 Saloon? Are they the same as the Cabriolet? What options do I have?
    Thanks

    Put up a pic of your headlights & the label on the top, plus pic of front bumper, then we can advise better.

    A4 saloon & avants have different headlights to the cab.

    Here's the part numbers you need:
    Right side 8H0941004C
    Left side 8H0941003AD
    Also you'll need to get someone with vcds to code the headlights to your car or the level adjuster won't work (iirc), I recently changed the headlights on my cab & had to change the level motor assembly over as the new ones wouldn't work....

    Thanks Jonni, that makes life much easier.
    Don’t suppose you have a list of part numbers or if you could point me in the right direction?
    I’m looking for a glovebox, cup holder, 3 front lower bumper grills (fog lights and middle) as you can see in pictures.
    Thanks in advance.

    Try using the parts request system on this site (tab at top of page) to get a quote on prices as ebay is always the best bet.

    Lower grills
    Left 8H0807681
    Center 8H0807647
    Right 8H0807682A

    Cup holder 8H2862534A

    Glove box lid 8H2857124 .... you might want have a go at repairing this as they are kinda pricey.

    Haha thanks mate, sheer luck found a post on Facebook marketplace and someone was breaking one :)

    However I have encountered more problems :( if you don’t mind helping me out that would be great
    I need a new rear coil spring on drivers side,
    New rear Discs, New Front Pads.

    Looked on Euro car parts and there’s 4 sets of Front Brake Pads £180 (£120 after discount) and on GSF there is 2 listed (£44.40 after discount) I’m thinking to get both sets from GSF and return the set I don’t need? Rather than forking out for 4 sets at Euro lol

    Euros it’s £100 for spring (£70 after discount)
    GSF £121 (£72.60 after Discount)

    GSF have 3 sets of Rear Discs listed
    245mm Solid £51.00 (£30.60 after Discount)
    255mm Solid £55.00 (£33.00 after Discount)
    288mm Soid £79.00 (£47.30 after Discount)

    Euros also have 3 Sets of Pagid rear Discs at the £69.98 255mm Solid (£46.89 after Discount)
    £123.98 288mm Solid (£83.07 after Discount)
    £131.98 300mm Vented (£88.43 after Discount)

    I mentioned pagid as I had some rear pagid pads fitted few days ago got from euros and the guy that fitted them did suggest for me to have discs done too so I got a second opinion first...now I think I need them lol so can I just get any discs?
