those are very cheap aftermarket headlights. those are basically depo P46.. horrible output and cheap quality. try investing in same used oem headlights or retrofit them.

The ones pictured look more like the 2000-2003 coupe, so if they send you what is pictured then they will fit. Maybe, depending on the quality.

Just look at Khoalty.com for headlights if you don't want OEM.

I don't know if anyone told you, but headlights help you see at night.

It's true, I read it in the manual.

Don't buy crap headlights.

If you scope out the classifieds you will find they can be had for a lot cheaper.
I already have OEM bixenons, so I have no experience with aftermarket.

I'm not advocating OEM at all, though they would probably be your best bet. My A4 had projector lights but were halogen. I used DDM xenon lighting kit in that and honestly I think they had better cutoff and light than my E46 OEM lights.

I would though look at lighting options from a reputable sponsor and not Ebay.

+1 more on the retrofit.. It's only like $300 tops and a few hours of work.
