I have a '98 vintage A3 1.8t is it possible to fit the later 2000 onwards headlamps ? Physically they look like they will fit with maybe some alterations to the wiring for the fog lamps.
Has anyone done this that can give me any tips or advise ?
Also thinking of changing the rear lamps as well to later style ones, are these plug and play for my earlier car ?

Great stuff ! I'll start there then Cool
Only bought my A3 as a daily while my coupes off the road but I'm a tad smitten by it ! Smooth like butter whereas my coupe is a bit raw !
