    Hi guys
    i am thinking of buying some 2008 > (i think it is a 8p3?) rear tail lights for my 55 reg a3 sline .
    is there any coding or anything like that to do or is it just simply take the old lights out and put the new lights in? has anyone got any before and after pics? thanks

    is there different types of 8P3 rear lights like or are they all the same from 8P3 sports to 8P3 sline?
    or were like a mark 4 golf se used to have orange indicators in the rear lights and gt tdis used to have smoked rear lights?

    depends on the colour of your car mate. I am tossing up the darker MY11's and the more "redish" MY09's for mine.

    May also be interested in rear lights on a 55 plate black sportback - is it a straight swap? What's the difference between 09 and 11 lights? Anyone got any photos? Thanks

    SB didnt change lights since 09, it was 3dr thats had changes in 09 & 11, although the SB 09 change was significant & looks great with led rings, not straight swap, there are adapters but I dont recommend them tbh.
