    98/99 pre facelift have grey tinted reverse lights, 99/00 post facelift have clear reverse lights, but both have same overall design

    So there's only one set of 99> lights then?

    94>96 Square reverse lamp
    96>99 Wide indicator smoked reverse light
    99>01 Wide indicator clear revers light, reverse and indicators swapped positions.

    Euro Car Parts for £28 a pop then seeing as Audi want £56 a pop:racer:

    fitted aftermarket ones to mine, came wired for 96, so had to open car harness plugs and swap reverse/indicator connections around

    They are what i have, went straight on my 98, but it could be because i had Facelift lights on mine and had to switch the wires for those

    ive swapped brake/rear light and fog light bulb holders around, reckon there better with brake/rear light up top, also added red coloured 501 bulbs to third brake light as it looked a bit pink when lit compared to main lights
