    Advice on 2009 REAR Lights for 3 door

    Hi guys hows it going?

    looking for some advice, i get my bonus next month so im already looking into doing a couple of mods with the car
    basically wondering is there a trustworthy and cheaper site to buy parts from online or do i just need to drive my lazy arse to audi dealer

    first off i like the look of the 2009 rear lights
    i have been searching for some time and the only set i have seen is from german ebay will these fit or should i just pay bit extra go audi dealer for these?

    i am also looking at buying the alu matt finsh mirror covers, these look ok has anyone tried them or again im i better going for the originals with audi? i dont fancy paying out for these if they peel or start to fade

    If you but the lights from Germany, make sure they are RHD spec, the ones in your photo are for LHD cars so would therefore have the fog/reverse switched the wrong way round, MOT fail!

    Whilst you are right and this is what i would do, the cost saving of buyinh LHD from Germany is not worth it, after all you would still have to drive round all year with a red reverse light and no fog light!

    I bought the RHD facelift lights from German eBay last year and the price was the same as for the LHD. Just had to tell the seller I needed the UK lights. The dealership price is around 85 per side.

    Seems like he hasn't got the 3door lights in stock at the moment. Won't hurt if you ask him

    Whats the deal with fitting 2009 rear lights to a 2007 S3? Is the vagcom needed, or is it just a straight swap over?
