I have no experience with S3 Spiders, so I don't know if I should be looking at this. It just about fits the descriptions I found online.
So if it's original, does it mean that the steering coloumn switch, which is not protected by relays in an S2 (and therefore frequently goes smokey-smokey-bandit), still isn't in an S3? I found some stray relays nearby but they look very aftermarket...

I have an 86 manufactured in 85 and it had the old style fuse box. However, someone or it came that way, headlight relays were bolted on top of the passenger side inner fender.

Originally no relays for the headlights. There are fuses - one for each beam.

Many owners have added relays for the headlights. This lowers the current the switch has to carry and makes sure the headlights get full power (better lighting).

Yeah, I added relays to my S2. The fusebox is so small, I had to add another panel. But in the S3 - as seen in the manual - there are plenty of unused relay sockets. Why not add the beam relays into, say, the empty A/C relay sockets? Seems easy and straightforward.
