I am dissatisfied with the standard headlights of A3.
Do know if anybody makes Xenon replacement lights? What does it require to install such lights?
Do know if anybody makes front spoilers and/or grilles which have places for extra headlights (or even preferrably them already installed)?
Something similar to S3 standard headlights, front spoiler and extra headlights might work. Could those be installed to standard A3 1.8T Quattro? Can those be bought as spare parts?
Any idea of the expences of the different options?

I don't know what or if it is possible to retro fit Xenon lights
I like the idea of a replacement lower grille that is fitted with the S3 foglights
Abt do a conversion to DE lights where are you living because it may only be for LHD vehicles
The S3 front spoiler is totally different because it wraps around to the wider S3 wings (fenders)
Jesse nothing for Audis is ever cheap !! Xenon on other models is a £900 factory option in the UK so the price to go in and order must be ££££££££

What do you mean mean by the conversion of DE lights? I don't understand. I live in Finland.
Does anyone know where to get a front spoiler and/or a replacement grille in which the extra lights could be installed?
Does anybody make Xenon extra lights?
I have already fog lights installed within the normal head lights as a factory option. Now I'm looking for extra "light power" in the long range.
What about S3 headlights?
Why not pop down to your dealer and ask them if S3 headlights could be fitted as a straight replacement to the standard A3 ones?
If you find out, let us know.

The DE lights are made by Hella and were the same type as fitted to the BMWs a few years ago. I think they are known as projectors and I suppose they were a forerunner to Xenon .I don't know if they are exactly what you are looking for.
Check the voltage at the bulb as even a slight drop can seriously affect the light output. It may be that relays would help if the voltage is not 13+ when the engine is running.
