    Hi All,

    Some S-Lines had them as an optional extra - although I think these were the early 2008/9 cars.

    Is it possible to retrofit the LED lights on a b8? If so, is it expensive/big job?
    Thanks

    Looking at the 2009 brochure if Xenons are specced (standard on s-line) the led rears come too

    http://www.audi.co.uk/content/dam/au...0July%2009.pdf

    Do you have a picture of the car? Its easy to spot if they are led or not.

    I made this video of the Avant rear cluster when I was working on some rear light tweaks : Audi A4 (B8 - MY2010) Avant Euro LED Factory fit Tail Lights - YouTube

    As above they came in with MY2010 models but you will find some on 09 plates too. Basically around July/August 2009 onwards.

    Can you fit LED rears to a 2009 model though and is it a big job? (I'm hoping mine will have them)

    Just trying to figure out what extras it has from the list! Hmmm......

    Seat Cover: Black & Silver - Does that mean Black with the silver stitching?
    S line sports suspension - Is that no charge Optional extra?
    Gloss Package - What's that?
    Radio High - Again, What's that?
    Not sure exactly what Bluetooth it is. I've tried looking it up in the 2009 Brochure

    Is there any other extras that I've missed and anybody else can spot?

    Doesn't look like it has parking sensors then!

    I've an August 2008 S-Line avant (front Xenons but not LED rears) and have retro fitted the LED rear lamp units.
    The expensive part is the lamp clusters - I was lucky and found a set on ebay for £200, but usually go for more.
    Its not a simple plug and play though as you need to do some rewiring and also recoding. Kufatec comes in here and do a kit that comprises of the necessary wiring harness and a dongle that plugs into the OBD port and recodes the car to operate the rear LEDS.
    The harness is needed as the connectors into the rear lights themselves are different and also with the LED lights the brake lights also operate on the inner lamp units (std bulb units brake lights are only outer).
    To fit the harness is inner boot trim off, its no a big job, took me a couple of hours all in.

    Link to the page with the Kufatec harness here...
    A4 - B8/8K
    It still says not suitable for RHD cars, but I can confirm it does work on UK RHD... I discussed with them first and said I'd try and let them know, but it doesn't look like they've updated the site.

    They do a bundle with the lamp units too, but it starts getting dear.... as it does if you start looking at all the other retro-fit stuff you can do with the bits on their site. Hope that helps.

    That's a helpful post Ian, I've got some LED rears (well, 3 out of the 4 lights so far!) so will look at getting this kit once I've found the last light I need. Sounds easier than having to get the car recoded, and presumably makes it fairly easy to reverse should I want to at sometime

    Early B8's didn't have them, I have a local customer in a 09 58reg and he has xenons but no rear LED's.

    I have a customer who bought these - Genuine Audi A4 8K B8 Saloon LED Rear Light Kit 2008 | eBay

    you would need to get saloon ones if that's what you have.
    Bi Xenon Projector kits starting at £79.99 per pair.

    Mine is a July 2009 SLine Avant with Bi Xenons (main beam are xenon to) and it has rear LEDs, I think....
    Indicators are normal but sure all the red rear lights and break elements are bright LEDs?
    How do I find out without pulling them apart?

    Its really easy to see the differense.
    You can post a picture here With just the running lights on.

    This is LED. You can see all the small "dots", also known as LED lamps.

    Yep I got LEDs
    Just unlocked car and DLRs and rears came on and can see clearly the side lights are LEDs
    I take it the break lights (including high level) are too?
    Indicators and fog/reverse look like bulbs.

    Mine is a 2009 B8 so pre-facelift
    I am guessing the break lights are cos they don't half light up the garage door when I reverse onto the drive lol
