Headlight options?

A3 8l pre-facelift headlight recommendations

It's time to upgrade headlights. Would people here recommend doing the mod (cutting the sheet metal) and fitting the facelift lights? Or should I be looking at an aftermarket solution ... realise it is personal taste - just wondered what people think.

I quite like what RichA3Turbo has fitted here:

And Dre_S3 has done here

However these seem to look OK...

AUDI A3 1995-2000 CHROME HALO HEADLIGHTS

But perhaps they are ****. What do people think? This a good alternative to the mod or should I just man up and get the Dremel out?

Not sure about DRL ones

AUDI A3 96-00 CHROME AUDI STYLE DRL HEAD

think they might look a bit naff. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

Go for the genuine facelift lights (2nd hand) and if they're badly oxidised do the wet n dry restoration method.

The poor aftermarket ones are notorious for bad condensation and quality.
