    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?:weight_lift2:

    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.

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