    Anyone hate the MY11 rear lights?

    Hi guys,

    Just a quicky, does anyone who has bought the rear MY11 lights for the 3 door dislike them?
    I know a few hate the darkness of them so next week when I get my 2009 A3, I'd be willing to swap for MY11 plus some cash your way? If anyone is interested?

    Cheers,

    Dan.

    I read that thinking you had 11 rears and didn't want them anymore... now I see you're just hoping someone hates theirs enough to swap for the non-tinted 09s. Cheeky. I absolutely love my 11s, no way you're having them

    My friend fitted My11 lights on his akoya silver A3, and they look totally awesome.

    I posted pics of changing over from the old style to MY11s a few months ago, the difference doesn't seem that big until you see the two side by side. The 09s and 11s are the same style, just the 11s have a smoked edge too.

    I swapped my MY09's for MY11's last month and would never swap back, love the darker look. Think it makes the rear of any 8P look bang up to date.

    Well, it was worth just putting a feeler out there to see if anyone wasn't keen, I think Ash prefers his MY09 lights..
