S3 xenons are not straight forward, very costly to buy, and complicated to fit and stay legal.

Xenons are all self leveling, with sensors on the suspension to tell the mortors in the headlights where they need to set the headlights.

Xenons also need high pressure washer jets to keep them clean and free of debris.

Some people choose to ignore this, but its is a very grey area, with regards to the law, and insurance etc. Cause and accident, or your lights get blamed in on, and you could be in deep water without a paddle.

The Normal Halogen one piece lights, of the A3 would fit, and still look like S3 items, but without Xenon, and not need all the ancillary equipment.

Apparently from previous posts it will require a small part of the inner wing, about the size of a fag packet cut away to allow them to fit.
