    What bulb for rear brake light S3 8P 3 door?

    Hi all,

    As title suggests, which bulb for the rear brake light on the S3 8P 2008 3 door?

    My right one is out and want to get one today before pulling the cluster out.

    Many thanks

    Hey mate,
    When the stop globes went on my old A3, I was able to pick up new ones from the servo.
    Bayonet, pretty standard globe.

    Took 10 mins from start till finish. Pretty easy job actually with no "side effects" hehe. I just went to BP on templestowe rd and got the Repco ones. Looked fine to me. Couldnt be bothered doing a Fri eve drive to Autobarn.
