Audi A5/S5 (8T B8) – [facelift conversion] additional parts needed

This article is dedicated to people that own an Audi A5 B8 (years 2007 – 2012, pre-lift) and bought our SR66 Audi A5 B8.5 kit and are willing to do a facelift conversion during the body kit install. Parts numbers listed here have just an informational purpose! The part number for your car may be different! For example when you have different types of headlights (Halogen or D3S).

Parts listed below can be treated as a minimum requirement in order to install our B8.5 body kit on a B8. If somebody would like to do a complete exterior facelift, then keep in mind that the 2012-2016 versions of the A5 also had different mirrors and rear lights (LED or “neon” ones. Pre-lifts had light bulbs).

When changing the headlights remember, that the new parts will have to be “added” to the car’s computer via some diagnostic software like VCDS or similar. When doing the facelift, one can upgrade from halogen headlights to D3S (xenon), yet a harness upgrade will be needed. On the market, there are some “plug & play” solutions, like headlight adapters.
