    As per the title, im going to fit some face lift rear lights to my 99 S4 avant tomorrow. Im sure ive seen mention of swapping pins over etc? Will they just plug in and work or do i need to swap pins about? Details of which pins would be good if that is the case as im strapped for time tomorrow
    thanks ..lee

    I would assume you will need to do the pin swap in the plugs like you do with the saloon.

    If the same the swaps are

    O/S - Swap Blue/Red with Black/White

    N/S - Swap Blue/Red with Black/Green

    That's for saloon, double check before changing any wires. I've only performed the swap on my current one, never bothered on my old avant

    Oh and a pic for you Aragorn
    They are nigh on perfect. Open to offers, not looking for much
