    Hey everybody! I bought my first Audi a couple of weeks ago; an A3 2.0 FSI 3DR 2008. It was in really good condition and I'm really pleased with the car! I've been descoverying a new feature almost every day! (last one was finding out it has a subwoofer! cool!! :rock:)

    So here is the thing, I had the idea to upgrade the whole car to the 2009's facelift at first, but after finding out that isn't really a cheap upgrade at all, I've changed my mind and now just want to change the tail lights!

    At first I was pretty sure I liked the MY11 over the MY09's lights on my Lava Grey, but I've been thinking the MY11 may look a bit weird as they are a Little too "new" for the car (mine has the pre-styling bumpers with a stripe, not the facelifted "clear" ones). So...

    Does anybody has a pre-facelifted Lava grey A3 with the tail lights upgrade?? With pics to show to help me decide between MY09 and MY11??

    I know this thread has been discussed before, but i couldn't find an A3 with the same rear bumper as mine and I wasnt sure if I should revive an old thread or just post a new one. :blush:

    Thanks for your help! :yes:

    You mean MY11 or MY09?

    You did the MY09 upgrade right? Can you post a pic of your car?

    I think I'm going for the MY09's.

    If anybody needs help with any accesory, I can help using photoshop to "try" them out first ;)

    The darker ones get my vote. (not sure if those are 9's or 11's because I've got a Sportback)
