    Just took delivery if some MY09s, they've been at Royal Mail for a while as I've been unable to pick them up. Popped them on but there is a lot of movement in them, they don't appear to sit right and there is quite a big gap around the light when fitted. I'm guessing it's to do with the 2 small rubber washers that are missing completely off one side and ones missing on the other side, anybody know of a fix for this? Do I need to buy the washers? If so anybody got a PN? Or if they have dropped somewhere is there anyway to access them? Thanks in advance

    I assume you mean the rubber grommets where the two metal balls on the light insert into? Yes they're essential to secure the light.

    Are you sure they aren't just stuck to the original lights?

    Yep that's the buggers, nope they look to have fallen inside. I've just been to Audi and bought 8 of them, keep some for spares. Thanks

    did you get the 11s as cheap??

    I gave up looking for lights themselves since they were never cheaper than about £170 at the time, but the guy in ashton had a door on ebay from a 2010 car and I asked him off chance what else he had, and he said he had the lights and only asked for £70 for the pair but as they were local I couldn't not go and check, got lucky :)
