When exactly did Audi do the new facelift on the A3?

I mean the facelift with the new oversized wing mirrors with the side repeaters in them and the new style wheels on the S-line.

Also what changes are there from the previous model?

Thanks..

That was last year wasn't it ? ie for the 09 model ? I seem to remember different headlights, tails, wheels, engines....( although it's the w/e and I've had a few bevvies so may not be entirely accurate ! )

Mines a 58 Face lift, but with it being my first audi, not sure on the difference between the two

I think the first models starting appearing around July time if memory serves me right.

Mostly it was cosmetic tweaks. The new headlights (xenons came with LED DRLs), the wing mirrors, rear light clusters, front bumper......

The TDI engines changed from PD engines to commom rail.

Spec changes - the SE lost a lot of it's (previously) standard equipment.

Is it possible to fit the new headlight switch (with auto lights) in a pre-facelift and have it working?

If so anyone know how difficult it would be?

The new headlight switch has a position for DRL so I don't think it will be a 'plug and play' swap.
