    Just thought I'd post up a couple of pics of my car, one with the original 'old style' rear lights and one with my new '09-> style' ones, to help swing somebodys decision as to whether they should do the upgrade or not. I think they help bring the rear end bang upto date, well chuffed with them :cool:

    Avaliable from your local Audi dealer and the 3 door requires no coding to fit!

    Facelifted lights make the rear look so much better!

    This has been lingering on my mind for a while.

    Not sure if its worth the cost (they aren't actual LEDs :unsure:) but they do look much sharper!

    What kind of work is involved in replacing the old ones?

    5 mins job Phillip

    Open boot, take screw out holding lights in, pull light off, unplug connector, connect new light, push back into place, do screw up

    Jordan everything is always a doodle for you :applaus:

    Have you done this? I can't help but want to do things to the car.... luckily I dwell on most things or I'd be in some serious trouble!!

    So are you suggesting I can visit you if I go for this and it gives me trouble :sly:

    To be honest, swapping these lights could be done by a 5 year old. They are one of the easiest parts to remove from the car.

    If you have any problems doing the swap then maybe I suggest night school! :)

    Definately worth doing, also they will sell for the price you bought them for on ebay or here.

    I must admit I didn't "not like" the old ones but I just think these are a bit more modern looking??!!

    Looks fantastic. makes the rear look so much newer. If you live near essex i can help you install them. but as everyone said... its a piece of ****.

    When you unscrew the lights from inside the boot, DONT drop the screw because it will fall into a hollow thats very annoying to gain access to.

    I paid £164.50 inc. VAT for the pair but that was with a bit of discount due to knowing someone who works at Audi :icon_thumright:

    That's a very good price, I kept my eye on ebay looking for a pair for what seemed like ages before eventually getting fed up of waiting and biting the bullet and ordering some from the main dealer!

    I had mine a while back along with the '09 S3 Rear valance and trim, just need to fit them now.
    Maidstone Audi got the parts in no time and they were cheap too! I'm sure the rears were £70odd each :)

    Ah man! Miss my chance! I blame my work for making me miss golden opportunities!!

    Nigel did you mention before that you had the reverse lights working on both? I will ask more questions when I see you (the fountain of knowledge) :sly:

    Plug straight in, literally! If you buy brand new they come pre fitted with the bulbs so you dont even have to bother with that!

    You can actually buy the bulb carriers seperately Jordanian, lenses I need to check whats actually different if any.

    31/05/2010 onwards has a new lense, so far cant see sweet FA difference, but has new part no. guessing MY11 aswell, we'll see when comes into stock.
