    Looking good mate. The rear lights are one of the best mods you can do, change the whole rear end.
    The old ones are sh*t fair play, couldnt wait to change mine:) Once again looking good mate
    And glad your happy with them and sounds like some good plans with the alloys.

    Good yeah you got a good deal. Dont worry not long wait now!! Well i stopped using accident exchange as they were just ****. Taking too long to do anything, only thing they did was get some one to call me about making an injury claim...My insurance want to deal but Quinn Direct are **** and dont fill me with confidence. So gone to a company called helphire who are calling me today to confirm a book in date with my local Audi. So hopefully start repairs next week. Doing my heading to be honest, the guy said he not claiming but disputing liability? Which just tells me he knows he at fault because if you believe your 100% not at fault you will claim.

    Yo bro..thanks for that... yeh as Bensk said its literally a staright swap... 10 min job max and its a huge improvement on the rear .... def money well spent on this mod..... I got mine second hand as audi were wanting 190 for the pair... keep your eye out on other forums and the Bay for some but i know they are light goldust so may be worth just getting them from audi.. trust me its worth it

    I think the MY11 rears are darker so you now have an excuse to go the dealer route :)

    Are the new MY11 rear lenses slightly darker?? Someone else mentioned this above...can anyone verify this? Part numbers? Will the newer darker ones still swap like the normal facelift lights?

    Cheers me dears,

    Yeah the MY11 rear lights on the 3 door are slightly darker again to the MY09 lights. The parts numbers were posted up by someone I think, if not just ring an Audi dealer....

    Ok, cool cheers matey. I just wanted to be sure.

    I spoke to audi today and they weren't too sure, they said the part numbers seem to be the same as the 09 rears but with a 'B' on the end. They said they would order one side in, if correct, would then order the other side in for me. Will keep u posted!

    mmm, parts that are revisions/updates have an incremented suffix. You would thought a partsman would know that. Probably erring on the safe side. TBH, I couldnt see much difference in colour between 2009&2011 lights

    TBH mate there isnt much difference and because they are the same price it would be purely down to personal taste... you would only really know the difference once a 09 and 11 were parked up next to each other IMO but because they are newer i am sure people will want to get them over the 09 lights... I am happy with 09 lights.
