    LED rears.

    Can somebody please buy a set of the LED rears, as seen on the Geneva S3 pics?

    S3's from the Geneva Motorshow

    A silver S3 owner would be good.

    Come on Chins, JamS3 and John.....you know I would do it for you if I had the car yet.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    Sod it...if the A6 can have them and not be chavvy, I am gonna take the plunge and see what they are like. If they are chavvy I can always sell them to someone with a remapped Sportback TDi with an S3 front and mirrors ....

    ABout 180 retail, less than 150 on Ebay. The description on the link above suggests that they are slightly smoked, though looking at them there is plenty of silver/grpahite colour showing.

    I may well buy a set from an online retailer, and if they suck I can return them under the DSR.

    And what exactly is wrong with the cap? Lol...The only way to find out if they look chav is for me to get them, but come on the standard clusters suck...

    Bowfer, I stopped worrying about your opinion a while back, at about the same time you said you try to cause accidents by driving dangerously in the 30's to stop people overtaking you. I think the LED's on the front of the A6 look great, as apparently do Audi being as they will have them on the R8 and S5.

    And thanks for the pictures of the clusters TDI-line, a bit more helpful than most of the posts.

    Why can't they just make a clone of the OE tail lights but with LED? Would be much classier....

    I think me means the rear lights that all A8's have and some A6's saloon & Avant (of which the Avant lights look truly stunning).
