    How much have you seen them for?

    Just a question thou, I've just had our rear leds lights (4 pieces) replaced on the A4 under warranty and on the invoice is says total cost of lights £394 inc vat. So how come Audi seem to charge more for the same lights over the counter in the parts dept.:keule:

    Just saw a brand new a4 with different style LED taillights, much like the a5. Alot nicer IMO than the led style ones pictured above. Does anyone
    know if these would fit an earlier b8?. Are we still on the b8 model?

    The newer A4 has been dubbed the B8.5 on the US forums - don't know if this is the official term for it?

    The newer rear lights can be fitted and the good news is they are a dirrect swap if you have an Avant. If you have a saloon you need a new boot lid though as the inner lights are a different shape. In both cases you will need VAG-COM for coding.

    Hope that helps?
