Frustrating day today started with a flat tyre. Booked a slot at my local dealer for a double front replacement, only to be thwarted by a flat battery. RAC turned up this evening after a seven hour wait. Battery jump and spacesaver used in anger for the first time. Will try to set out for the Audi dealer again tomorrow, just hope the automotive gods are smiling...

Had my Black Friday new front tyres fitted, drop down to 195-50-16 on the front and put the 205-50-16’s on the rear, that’s stopped the full lock tyre rub, must admit I think the smaller tyres look better, I will go all round with them next time. Kumho Ecsta were the sweet spot for me, price V noise V economy.

Just received my early Bday present today. Brand new headlight 😊

Is there a way to identify if this is a single or splittable unit?

Happy birthday, try taking the retaining clips off (mine had one at the top and one at the bottom), if it comes loose easily then a splittable, if not then this a single unit. Having taken mine off today, mine are a single unit so somewhat difficult to clean the inside.

Today I,

Took off my headlights, cleaned as much as I could (non splittable later units) and replaced. They now match my fogs which I cleaned last week!

Strangely spooky pic of my A2 without it’s headlights.

Thanks! I was hoping for a part number to identity the two different variants....
