    Question S3 Facelift Rear Light clusters - Are these all i need?

    Thinking of buying these:-

    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    Do i need to do anything or buy anything else to make them work on my pre-facelift?

    I've searched for historical links on this hearing that its been a talking point over the years but I have not been able to find them.

    Would be grateful for any comments.

    Thanks

    I believe you do them from the boot....

    If you have a quick search there are a few that have done the swap already, so maybe wother having a quick look, afaik, i havent seen a write up, but you maybe able to drop them a message for some advise.
