    I am in the process of fitting N8KOW's S3 Sportback new rear lights to his 2008 SB but trying to work out the wiring as they now incorporate a LED ring similar to the new cabriolet.
    What I am looking for is pics of the cabriolet lights with there different lights on, they hopefully will be similar to the SB lights
    Pictures required
    1. Lights off
    2. Side light on
    3. Brake lights on
    4. Side and brake on
    5. Fog on

    I have got the led rings to work but not sure what else they work with.

    Also if anyone with a cabriolet in the Derbyshire or Cheshire has one Nathan or myself could have a look for ourselves if convenient.

    Thanks in advance

    oempl.us are advertising an upgrade to the new european taillights.

    http://oempl.us/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=60_61&products_id=754

    Bit pricey since they come in at about €200 all in over here - although it does come with a wiring harness. Would it be worth firing them off an email to see what the wiring harness consists of? My guess is that it is just a male and female connector that sits between the existing loom and the lights.

    Probably not much use to him then! :lmfao:

    I didn't look who posted the pics on the thread...just knew I'd seen some night shots of the lights....and very nice they are too.

    Anyway, apologies.......

    Thanks for that, they light up as I thought they would. Just need to work a bit more on the SB setup. Thanks again
