    04 changed to 09 A3 rear lights ? can this be done?

    yo guys...

    Just seeing if anyone knows if it is possible to upgrade to the 09 rear clusters on a 04 ? if so does anyone know if it is a straight swap or alot of modification to bodywork and wires are needed?.. Thanks

    If it's on a 3 door then it's a straight swap, no other work needed.

    Good luck, rare to find on ebay, and they ain't cheap from the stealers!!!

    5 min job, boot open, undo screw inside boot, take light off (carefully), unplug, plug new light in, put it in place, put screw back in

    DONE

    Yep, a definite straight swap. Good luck finding a second hand set though.... I've been looking for months!
    Probably gonna buy brand new from Audi if I don't find a set soon.

    You can get them here http://www.kufatec.de/shop/product_i...udi-A3-8P.html

    ...but after delivery etc you're probably better off getting direct from Audi for 160-170'ish for the pair... i think.

    Did mine on saturday in my driveway. All you need is a flat head screwdriver, and the units themselves. Paid 165 from Audi main dealer, they come with all the bulbs so it's literally plug and play. Check the thread I started to see the end product.

    it was 83.02 per light, total 166.04. that was the price Stoke Audi gave me, and Leeds Audi matched it no questions asked. no idea about the trade price.
