Well my friend has them in Germany :D

Not bad for 400 Euros delivered :big_wink:

They are the facelift lights as well which means i will have to trim some of the fender, but apart from that will be an easy fit

I may need to get a converter for the connector currently looking into it could be lucky ;) And a higher amp fuse as the xenons give a power burst at the start :D

My friend also got me Philips Silvervision Bulbs for the indicators to get rid of the 'fried egg look'

hopefully get them in 2 weeks :D

Ill keep u boys updated with progress so we can get some more A3's with xenons :)

is XXX-1.8T still active?

I wanna know how this all went! :(

If your listening XXX-1.8T, post some more pics :)

Also did you end up needing a convertor? and where do you get a higher amp fuse?

actually they are the same as on mine...
but just last nite i noticed that one xenon was pointing only a metre infront of the car.. so i knew something was wrong...
when i pulled over and had a look... the insides of the headlight where loose and pointing down..
i tried for about half an hour to get the thing out to fix it but came to the conclusion that the whole front bar has to come off in order to get it out....
ridiculous i reckon....
anyways im starting to think that something snapped off inside... so i may not be able to fix it...
therefore i may need to purchase another set....Costa how much did you pay for them including shipping?

if you dont mind me asking?? :mrgreen:

You ever thought of just buying an S3, they arent that expensive anymore.

Yes, but most decent ones are in excess of $40k. That's ALOT more $$$ than an A3T...

Id consider selling mine for 50k. Its got almost 8k worth of suspension in it, un 50k km and 2 year warranty left. :wink: Would replace it with an S4 but not sure if its a forward step or backward one. :shock:

You should be fine if you have the later lights. Its just plug and play. As with the higher fuse you can get them from Audi.

Ok cool thanks man :)

So I can do it with just the original ballasts? do I need any other cables? where did you mount them?

Thanks again
