    I believe that the lights on the Blue car (with the 15 segment LED block) are Matrix LED, the other are standard LED.

    The pattern of the 15 segment light changes depending on the model of the car

    I saw a write up about all the configurations somewhere, this is all I can find at the moment
    https://carbuzz.com/news/2021-audi-rs3-will-have-funky-chequered-flag-headlights

    If you have a look at the configurator (under Lights), you can change between Standard > LED > Matrix LED

    The lights on the blue one are the better Matrix lights but an optional extra . The lights on the grey car are the standard led lights

    Thank you. Yes, it seems the ones on the blue one are just over £600 extra.

    I thought that - £1595 on a Sport Model - Must be to to with the S3 having the new led daytime running lights no not much of an upgrade I suppose

    Im assuming these "matrix" type lights operate in the same way regardless of manufacturer, and if thats the case then I can definitely recommend them. :sunglasses:
    They are standard on my car and in the 3 months since I bought it I've not tired of watching them work every time I am out in the dark...in fact even the check procedure they do when starting the engine never fails to amuse me. :D
