I have a set of facelift 8P3 Magnetti Marelli rear light clusters to fit to my 57 plate 8P2. I have been told these are plug and play and will work straight away, although will need coding as they will throw up a warning/error. Is this correct? Can't try it out for the next couple days as the first thing I did when I collected the car yesterday was drop it straight in to Audi for a cambelt/waterpump.
The new clusters came with no lamps, and I 'think' they are slightly different to the 8P2 in terms of the lamping. All lamps should be transferrable, although I think the later clusters incorporate a 5w/12v wedge type somewhere in there, as per this picture:
What function (indicator/brake/reverse) does this perform... I need to know so I can buy the right colour (clear or orange).
Any help appreciated!
