looks like those headlights are waaaaaay messed up, first of all, the door on the drivers headlight has no clip to hold it on (which is not likely repairable)... the tab is broken (which is repairable)

and the door is missing on the passanger side, i hope you are getting a heck of a deal..

well the tab kits are like 12 bucks at ecs...

the door im not sure about, you may be able to use any US spec headlight door, and the tab that holds that door closed, youll have to rig something up

well i would it just that my car came with the 2 piece headlights and they are not the same, because as you well know all the bulbs are in one headlight casing, and the door that i am missing is the highbeam, which also i belive is the area were the wireharness goes into? unless im mistaken

i went form 2 piece to a 1 piece and i cut the back of my 2 piece to reuse that and poxy it to the new housing back and it worked. Its not that hard.

Bad news: The wiring harness is not sold separately. There is no partnumber for this. I had the samne problem last week and tried to figure it out together with the local audi dealership. The rear cover has a partnumber but the connector and the wiring harness is definitely not availible from audi.

Very sorry for this bad news !

of course not...these are his halogen ones, and he had to take a few parts from these for his S4 headlights that he got in

I have the cover with the wiring attached if you need one. All you have to do is plug the connector into the back of it.

I'm pretty sure I have an extra cover with wiring harness in my basement. I'll catch up with you on AIM when I know for sure.

cheers
