    Just updated the rear end on my 8p with new 2011 rear light. I managed to source these genuine lamps for a bargain of £62 Each brand new from a retailer. (as the saying goes its not what you know its who you know)

    heres a few pics of the changes.

    They look spot on, after a pair of these myself. Can't seem to get them anywhere near as cheap as you did. Great buy!

    That really is a good price! I looked on euro car parts and I think they were £85 each, looking at yours thinking it might be an investment worth making though..

    Thanks. I called euros about a month ago asked if they stocked them and they said they don't list them so if you have a part number that will be great.

    Part numbers are osr = 478445120 nsr=478445110
    If the part numbers end in a 0 it means they are oem/genuine made parts

    Nope plug straight on with new bulb holders you will need to buy new brake light bulbs though as they are different. They are similar to sidelight bulbs just bigger n brighter

    If your a3 is the same as mine mate it will fit. They come with the new holders etc just need a new bulb. Not shre what they ar but they are a bit bigger than a sidelight bulb
