    Anybody know what I should be looking at paying for a pair of these? Where's the best place to purchase? eBay? Also how easy are they to fit? Thanks

    I believe you need to have an account to order online, best off going in although as I mentioned above I got told they didn't serve general public but other people have said that's rubbish

    I use Liverpool Tps who do sell to the public and also to the trade. They do deliver to the trade but not sure if the deliver too the public, best to give your local Tps a call and see. I've bought all kinds off them before so I know they do sell to the public.

    you're looking at £150-200, this is the common "going rate"

    it is rare but not at all impossible to get a shocking bargain

    I found a door on ebay from a 2011 a3 just a couple of miles away, I messaged asking "do you by any chance have the back lights from this car?"

    I found myself in possession of a pair of 2011 rears for a very respectable.... £70
