Replacing cracked headlight


Registered User
Hey guys,

Managed to hit a pigeon the other day which has cracked my nearside headlight. Spoke to Audi and they quoted a minimum of £600 for a replacement headlight. I've checked around and it appears there's two options.

Firstly to try replacing the lens off Amazon through heating it up in the oven.

Second would be to buy a cheaper one off Ebay. Only issue I can see with the Ebay one is it mentions the following: Without Ballast With Motor For Headlamp Levelling Without Glow Discharge Lamp Without LED Control Unit For Daytime Running- Position Light Without LED Control Unit For Low Beam High Beam.

Would this be a simple removal of the parts from the current headlight as I've done that on previous cars? If you have any other advice would be greatly appreciated!
