Thinking about S5 purchase and not very familiar with the platform. There is a 2010 close by for a reasonable price….what should I look for when evaluating a s5 for potential purchase? Think the B8's are 2008-2011 and B8.5 are 2013 & up, first question can the B8's be fitted with the B8 solid headlights to replace the older style led setup? Any additional tips and info appreciated. Cheers[:)]

Yes. You can find the B8.5 platform 2013+/Facelift headlights for a B8 platform "Pre-Facelift". There are a few threads on the forums from people that have done the swap. You should be able to search for them!
