    Did mine a few weeks ago....a great improvement on the 'old' style.....a copuple of things to watch out for if you do this mod:-

    • If you use Kufatec loom extenders, make sure you get 'Left' and 'Right' the right way round!
    • The coding will need chanigng but the Kufatec plug-in coding module does work
    • Before you put the lights back into position, it is worth wrapping the connections with Halfords' Self-Amalgamating rubber tape to protect against water ingress

    Bought my rear Audi A3 8P LED lights of a guy that was selling spares. Got them for a bargain at £100 for the full set. Was looking around for some time and finally got lucky.
    I wanted them fitted like it would have come out the factory. Saw the adaptor looms in ebay for roughly £40 and didnt really like the looks of them.
    PM'd Ash187 to get these fitted. Excellent guy and knows what he is doing. He got some custom looms which when fitted looks factory installed. Doesn't take long at all and all professionally installed. After the coding it looks awesome.
    Ash187 is recommended.
    My 2005 Audi A3 looks excellent. My next step is to have fully installed footwell interior lighting. Cant wait.

    Are the lights from the German eBay seller still the best ones to get as they seem to still be available?

    You would need new connectors and a bit of rewiring if you didn't buy the looms... The looms do make it simple to do yourself though.
    Im sure there someone up there that can do the coding if you just fitted in the lights and adapters

    the German seller now and then goes out of stock and sets the price to something silly like a grand, but when he has them in stock he is the cheapest to get them from. Still not any issues with my lights or any of the guys that I have fitted in the past 3 years

    Are they genuine? And I'm guessing I will be needing the adaptor loom I have heard about, then try find somebody to code them ... Correct?

    Ash did my install about a month ago. Can't stress enough how this mod freshens up the back end! Ash was fantastic, absolute professional and programmed a few other things whilst he was there too :) I've got a few pics. Excuse the dirt.

    What year did they start fitting these as standard? I've just ordered a 10 plate black edition and have not seen it in the dark but wondered if it would have these...

    Thanks

    Guys, was hoping for some help..

    Installed the lights with the adapter loom, all is good except the right outer light which doesn't turn on no matter what i do.

    To diagnose the problem i tried :

    1. connect it to the left (working) side - won't turn on
    2. tried to use the adapter loom from the side that works - doesn't turn on as well
    3. here's the kicker - using the working light from left side on the right with either loom also doesn't work.

    Coded with VCDS as mentioned in a few posts over here.

    I am really lost.

    here's a picture of how it looks right now..

    Looks like it could be a faulty adaptor...
