    yes you deffo have the problem.
    kufatec adapters only stop you getting the bulb warnings on the dis, they dont get round the problem of still having the brake light half lit.
    the b7 lights should only have the middle square lit and the top section is for brake light only, i guess im correct in saying that the top is lit aswell as the center square on side lights, then the top becomes full brightness when you brake.
    the top light still has a 5v feed to it as it is the side light that becomes a brake light ( 12v feed )
    the 5v feed needs to be removed but still allow 12v from the brake.

    Sorry for the newbie question, but what other items would I need other than the rear light clusters and bulbs, and where could I source them from other than ebay?

    Would I need to do any metal cutting to get these to fit or is it all electrics?

    I am somewhat of an Audi novice so any help would be appreciated!

    you need the lights and the loom adapters, thats it, straight forward swap out, they are exactly the same size.
    the kufatec looms are about 57 plus the postage from germany, im making them now, exactly the same and can sell you them for 50 inclusive of postage.
    as for the lights themselves, the bay is the first option but there hard to come by in pairs, seem to bee more rights than lefts about.
    pm a guy called pjmspeedy, he gets parts at a good price and could do you a good deal.

    Hey, 1wheel,

    I'm in Dudley (go to uni in loughborough and my girl is in Nottingham), so i guess i'm all over the midlands.

    I have just given my cab to my cousin so he can get some work done to it while i'm busy, but i'll give u a shout in a week and see if we can arrange something.

    yes mate, thats what i mean, the kufatec loom alone doesnt complete the job, coding is required, kufatec themselves when i contacted them knew nothing, useless ! this is why i went on a mission to resolve.
    the plugs to adapt your own looms yourself are only about a quid each and the resistor needed is about 3 doddle

    I have been looking at mine recently, never actually checked them at night as I am always driving it. But I let my mate drive it a few days ago and I noticed that I too have the issue of the top light still being illuminated. When it should only be the square in the middle of the light that is lit up. Can anyone help??
