    im really unsure about ditching the rear rings (ooh eer), im considering ditching the rear wiper though. Not sure yet. Hmmm....

    All this talk about rings and wipeing is far too dodgy :sign_omg:

    It only works if you ditch the rear wiper IMO, looks silly otherwise.....may look silly without it too i'm undecided yet.

    i think i need to a pchop doing to convince me more. The rear wiper is a fat old thing and i never use it anyway. Not having a rear wiper is not a MOT failure either.

    I've de-badged my rear (oooor er) but left the rings on as I feel it would be too naked with out them, but I may look at getting a set sprayed black for the rear as I think that would work on a black car.

    Thoughts on a postcard ?

    Facelifted light do look good, time to order a set !

    I'm sure someone posted a pic of an A4 in black with black rear badges recently and it just didn't seem to work IMHO.

    I can do a chop if you want?

    many thanks DaveMK!!

    Think the rings need to stay. But the wiper removed looks quite good.

    That would be great thanks, question is though will I need to find a rear pic of my motor ?

    There may be a rear view of it in the pics thread I can't recall.

    Regards,

    Paul - it's up to you really. I just need a photo of the rear of any black A3 but if you want to see what your car will look like, then I'll need a photo of your car.

    Paul, only found a pic that James posted. If the car is different now, let me know and I can sort another chop for you. Also removed the badges for you (didn't look right with them IMO).

    Hi Dave,

    That is the only one I have too (without taking a new picture).

    Thanks - also Mikey sorry for the hijack.

    Now you see I think that works.

    If you don't mind Dave, I'll see if I can get a better rear shot over the weekend.

    Only thing I can see wrong with those, is that they are the wrong shape for an 8P :blownose:

    Well that is interesting as as far as I can see the bulb holder is the same up to model year 2009 and then only the prefix changes from 8P0 to 8P3.

    If it is true that they won't fit a 2004 model year then they shouldn't fit anything up to a 2009 year.
