    hi guys,

    I have been wanting to get my hands on a set of these for a while now and i have the cash waiting.
    Does anyone know of where i can get a set for a decent price? i have looked on ebay and there are some sets on eBay Germany but i would rather just go and pick a set up.

    Also I dont need the Kufatec cables either as i will be making up my own looms

    Also is it true that the MY11 Sportback rear lights are darker in tint like the MY11 3 door ones are? someone at Ace Cafe meet said that but i havent seen any like that?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Haha Ash, you didn't trust what I said, lol! Hope your good mate.
    Yeah the MY11 ones are darker tint like the 3 door.

    BTW changed my MFSW buttons to the black with chrome trim. Looks good. Will get some pics up soon.

    ahhh it was you! thats how **** my memory is! lol

    i really want to see the darker tint... might go and pop down to audi next week and browse around their new A3s (as you do)
    i fitted a couple of the rear lights yesterday for some guys and it just hurt when i came back to mine and saw how ugly the standard ones were... really need a set of those on my car.

    yh i read that you managed to swap your black ones with someone that had chrome ones... you jammy git! get some pics up! i might be looking for a flat bottom wheel soon :ninja:
